Above the clouds......


When dark were the skies
Looming above me,
When troubled clouds
Were all I could see,

When the rain fell
Relentlessly around,
When barren before me
The once fertile ground,

When bitter tears fell
In endless streams,
When my sleep was beset
With unhappy dreams,

I looked up to You
Your Name I did cry,
I called on my Lord,
My God the Most High.

And You outstretched lovingly
Your gentle hand,
You whispered so tenderly
The good You planned,

You held me close,
Drying each tear,
With lullabies of love
You allayed each fear,

You lifted me high
Above clouds once looming,
You pointed to me
Countless flowers blooming...

And so I now sing
Though the tears once fell,
As glorious is the story
Of my Jesus I tell.

Deep in my heart
He has restored sweet song,
While lifting me high
In His arms so strong...

O, yes, I have Jesus,
How can I ask for more?
Now high above the clouds
My heart does soar!

Psalm 40:2-3
"He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him."
