Grace Abounds

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8

(Send as an Inspirational Christian eCard!)

When the world is in chaos,

When my heart trembles in fear,

When sadness and pain

Seem to abound everywhere,


It seems You have left us,

Yet I know this is not true;

Despite all we see,

In the midst there is You.


Though You are perfect,

Evil You never create,

You permit the free will

Of those whom You create.


In the view of eternity,

All things You work for good;

Help me, O Lord,

To cling to You as I should.


When hearts are breaking,

When tears do not cease,

To You, O Lord Jesus,

All our fears we release.


Surely You know suffering,

Your cross we need only see;

Surely You know agony,

We see it there on Calvary.


God and King of all,

Yet in our hearts You are;

When we are suffering,

Lord, never are You far.


Embrace us with comfort,

Wipe the tears from our eyes;

You are our only hope,

You are our sunrise.


In dying upon the Cross,

In being laid in the grave,

You gave Your life as ransom,

Our lives You do save.

If a bridge to Heaven

Is also the Cross You bore,

Help us to be patient,

Yea, help us to endure.


Surely each cross

You shall turn to a crown;

Why then, my heart,

Are you cast down?


My hope is in the Lord,

My life He shall renew;

Even when all is crumbling,

I know this to be true.


Jesus, O Jesus,

You are my life, my King;

Even in the trials

My heart can sing.


So when the world is in chaos,

When trouble is near,

I just look up to You, Jesus,

Your grace abounds everywhere.
