YOU RAISE US UP

There’s nothing that is impossible

With Your righteous pure right hand,

After all You’ve spanned the universe

That’s forever at Your command.

Our situation and circumstances

Are never out of Your reach,

And although our patience may wear thin

There’s many lessons You want to teach.

You lift and raise us up indeed

From the valleys that are deep,

And You train us to keep our eyes on You

So faith and hope we keep.

There’s no situation out of Your control

And the most finite detail You know,

You’re aware of all that’s in our heart

With a knowledge You can’t forego.

You raise us up to climb each mountain

And every difficult terrain,

To swim the deepest of all waters

Where our reliance on You remains.

You raise us up to honour You

Since there’s absolutely no way,

That we do so on our own accord

Knowing there’s a price to pay.

A price to carry our own cross

But it’s a burden that we share,

When we trust in You to deliver us

With Your tender love and care.

You raise us up to give us hope

And we trust You’re always there,

You’re our precious Lord and Savior

And at the cross our burdens You bear.

(C) P.B. 2020

“and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6

“If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”  Matthew 17:20
