At such a time as this when my emotions try to get the better of me
when my thoughts get clouded just wanting to break free from my misery
when weariness sets in of standing in the midst of these all
when on the here and now I can just be ashamed for my wicked heart
Remind me, my sweet Hope of Your promised serenity
Remind me, my enduring Rock of Your love holding me steadfastly
When all I can weep for was what was gone,
remind me my Great Restorer of the blissful eternity.
For all these ruins, I am momentarily shaken
remind me I can persevere for all that You have given.
Remind me of the saints of old, and Your covenant made new,
O King Jesus, remind me that I have You.
