Lord, You are my Comfort

When the night is gloomy
And frost on the window creeps
When the moon shines no radiance
A promise close I keep

When it seems too dark
To ever find home my way
Through the bickering winds
One place I choose to stay

Lord, You are my comfort
When the world is crashing around me
When the rain pours down
When my eyes fail to see

Lord You are my comfort
The only thing remaining constant through life
No matter the depth of the valley
Or the mountain’s perilous height

When it seems like all hope is surely lost
I turn to You, My Lord, and live

When it feels like
I’ve got far too much to do
Like I’ll never reach my goal
That my dreams won’t come true

I just trust Your timing
I empty out my heart
Of all the worry inside
And watch as the seas You part

Lord, You are my comfort
My Savior, my Friend
When my yoke is too heavy to bear
You draw me in

When it feels like there’s nothing left I can do
I can turn to You, Lord, I turn to You

Every time I wait on You
And follow Your commands
You give me more than I ever dream
You feed me by Your hand

Then when I do stray away
And fail to hear Your voice
You take me from the darkness
Bringing me to fuller light

Lord, You are my comfort
Without You, what could I do?
Lord, You are my everything
And I give all my life to You

To you, to you…
I give all I am to You.

This is amazing! Its a prayer of thanksgiving, you know- An absolutely beautiful one! I want to bring this poem to my youth group. We all just got back from a church camp a few days ago! :) I agree it sounds like a song, but really i think just a prayer. It's really great, really! 5/5... definitely.
