Where Would We Be?

From Here’s My Heart: Prayers by Ray Hardin…

515wJDEmqrL

When the bottom drops out of our world

and we feel the earth give way beneath us;

When light is displaced by utter darkness

and we sense the danger all around us;

When the known fades into the unknown

and we cannot see the path ahead;

Then, Lord, then we marvel that through it all

you have been with us, right by our side.

And we wonder where would we be without you?

When our families get all strange

and we see and hear things that bewilder us;

When our jobs become taskmasters

and we gasp for breath against the pressure;

When change bursts in without being announced

and demands a new agenda;

Then, Lord, then we know that in your quiet way

you have walked every step with us.

And we wonder where would we be without you?

When our failures get bigger than the blunders of others

and we are convicted of our own sin;

When the loss becomes an ache

and we can’t imagine how we might survive;

When aging gets personal and vicious

and we fill up with resentment over declining faculties;

Then, Lord, then we understand that you made us,

you know us and you love us through it all.

And we wonder where would we be without you?
