I tell myself.......

Discussion in 'Literature and Poetry' started by Raymond Tremain, Nov 4, 2010.

  1. I tell myself, "I am finished!
    I can't count on the Lord
    to do anything for me"
    Just thinking of my troubles
    and my lonely wandering
    makes me miserable
    that's all I ever think about
    and I am depressed".

    Then I remember something
    that fills me with hope
    the Lord's kindness never fails
    if he had not been merciful
    we would have been destroyed.

    The Lord can always be trusted
    to show mercy each morning
    deep in my heart I say,
    The Lord is all I need
    I can depend on Him.

    The Lord is kind to everyone
    who obeys and trusts him
    it is good to wait patiently
    for the Lord to save us,
    when we are young
    it is good to struggle hard
    and to sit silently alone.

    From the bottom of the pit
    I prayed to you, Lord,
    I begged you to listen
    "Help! I shouted, "Save me!"
    You answered my prayer
    and came when I was in need,
    You told me, "Don't worry!"
    You rescued me
    and saved my life.

    you have just read from Lamentations chap.3
