Far Beyond

When my circumstances are far beyond me
I acknowledge Your ways are not my ways
Far beyond my understanding

When I’m in the dark place
You are my ray of light
Guiding my next step on the path before me

Father, when I am inconsolable
It’s in Your presence I find peace
It’s You alone Who can comfort me

When grief and tears consume me
You whisper hope in my ear
Jesus, my confidence is in You alone

When words fail me
Your Holy Spirit perfectly translates my groans
Into prayers before Your throne of grace

When my world crumbles around me
You take up the dark and jagged pieces
Work them perfectly into Your sovereign plan

But LORD, right now
I just need You to hold me
Be here with me in my grief
