Grace like Rain?

When hopes and dreams come dashing to a halt,
Father, you tell us ‘be the light and be the salt’,
You tell us ‘help the poor, the fatherless and orphan’,
We seek to help but Father, why won’t you let us go?
Our world turned upside down,
 our thoughts seemingly bound
You are the one who heals the broken hearted
You guide our paths and love us while we’re parted
I don’t know why you made the things the way they are
Some days I’m fainting, I just need the strength to stand and breath
Things are so hard
Yet through the sorrow, you show us yourself
Through the sorrow you are more beautiful
We find your face when we’re facing hardship
When our dreams come falling down
You are here, and all around
Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did you leave us on our own
Father, grace like rain is coming down.

Dedicated to my beautiful sister, Londa
