lyrics

Father, you give me comfort,
When my anxious fears arise.
Telling me gently I’m helpless,
To change one hour of my life.

Jesus, teach me your sabbath.
When all my struggles are weighing me down.
When I cannot stop working,
Til I can figure everything out.
Exhaust my reason, my effort,
Thwart my control, for in this you bless.
Show me how grace can’t be grace,
‘Til I stop and rest.

So don't take away my troubles, I want a peace that won’t break.
Cause if you only make me happy, I’m never gonna use my faith.
So don’t give me only good times, I want eternal content.
So I can sing through all my trials and rejoice in suffering,
In the strength that you give. In the strength that you give.

Spirit, lead me to worship.
You turn my head and you lift my eyes.
Giving me visions of Heaven,
Where my Father’s face is kind
Filled with the deepest thanksgiving,
Sincerest prayers and tender new songs
The earth may be crumbling and failing,
Yet my love grows more strong.

So don't take away my troubles, I want a peace that won’t break.
Cause if you only make me happy, I’m never gonna use my faith.
So don’t give me only good times, I want eternal content.
So I can sing through all my trials and rejoice in suffering,
In the strength that you give. In the strength that you give.
