Trust My Lord – Dr. Susan Hester

I close my eyes as fear still grips me

Adrift amid life’s churning sea.

Whose salty tears race down my cheeks now?

Are they from you, are they from me?

I fall again amidst the embers

Flamed by all my sin filled deeds

Rescue me from hell’s hot fury

Faith please cast a net for me.

Hope please cast a net for me.

Save my heart again from breaking

Stitch the wounds that now lay bare

Heal the pain that often blinds me

Raise my soul from its despair.

Love, I know can get me there

Trust my Lord to bring me there.
