Out of the Depths

Last year in August we shared a video of a precious baby boy named Ezra Blaze. In that video his mother shared a line from a song. I wanted to share the whole song with you today. These wonderful words are based on Psalm 130. This song was written by Bob Kauflin and is from the album Psalms.

Out of the Depths

Out of the depths, O Lord, I cry to You
When I am tempted to despair
Though I might fail to trust Your promises
You never fail to hear my prayer
And if you judged my sin
I'd never stand again
But I see mercy in Your hands

So more than watchmen for the morning
I will wait for You, my God
When my fears come with no warning
In Your Word I'll put my trust
When the harvest time is over and I still see no fruit
I will wait, I will wait for you

The secret mysteries belong to You
We only know what You reveal
And all my questions that are unresolved
Don't change the wisdom of Your will
In every trial and loss
My hope is in the cross
Where Your compassion never fail

I pray that this will be your prayer today, that your hope would be in the cross in every trial and loss!
