Just In Time
Just when the blackness of sorrow surrounds me,
And I've forgotten that You know or care;
Then does the light of Your presence illume me
And I see blessings of Yours everywhere.
Just when depression would seek to destroy me
And hope seems farther and farther away,
Then comes the sunshine and warmth of You, lifting
My gloomy night time to bright brilliant day!
When I look back, I wonder with passion
How I forget when Your Spirit abounds;
When all of nature and all of Your heavens
My little lifeboat completely surrounds.
When I look up, my God, to Your heavens,
Millions and billions of Your stars I see -
When I look down, Lord, study in earnest
I find life hidden in each tiny seed.
Teach me Thy ways, for I would not be faithless;
I would learn gladly the Source of my Light!
Thou Who dost love me and lead me and guide me;
Show me the plan You have made for my life!
