In Gods Arms


When you feel sure your strength has died,
And seems like no-ones at your side,
Just turn your thoughts to god above,
The one that gives a constant love,

And know that he has got your hand,
Through troubles, helping you to stand,
You may not notice when his there,
Your hurting just too bad to care,

Then all at once you see the light,
A ray of hope that feels so right,
Darkness slowly fades away,
While happiness comes to ease your day,

Strength comes stronger than before,
And clarity stands outside your door.
Once again you start to shine,
Smiles and laughter fill your time,

Wondering just how you got through,
The darkness that had hold of you,
But then you see you weren’t alone,
God held your hand and led you home,

To a home that dwells within your soul,
Filled with such love to make you whole,
Just waiting patiently unheard, unseen,
Till needed again to intervene.

So always know gods at your side,
Just let him in, don’t try to hide,
He helps when no-one thinks he does,
And loves like no-one else can love,

It comes in ways we may not see,
Like children, friends and family,
We just don’t see it at the time,
Just keep the faith all will be fine.

So when the world is causing harm,
Just know, god holds you in his arms

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
