Listening to every heart
Just when I think I cannot take any more
Because death or sorrow has come to my door
I take a deep breath and try to dry my eyes
And remember that Your love is grander than realized.
Thank You for being there, for allowing me this new pain
To remind me that suffering is nothing new, but just a name
Because of what You, who gave so much
All to remind us that we remain in your touch.
You forgive us for not praying, and for falling astray
You forgive us all things, each and every day.
Even when we forget that everything is already in Your plans
And we forget that you pick us up when we can no longer stand.
So thank you, Lord, for your forgiving ways
And for showing me the silver lining in a thousand ways
In the brush of an angelís wing, or a touch from a friendís hand
Thank You, Lord, for reminding me that life indeed is so grand.
