He Always Understands
When our best seems not enough,
And somehow we've missed the mark-
When misunderstood by others,
And the day is dreary and dark-
Our precious Lord lights our way
As He holds us in His hands,
Encouraging our weary souls-
He always understands.
His grace is all sufficient
When we find our spirits low;
And though our flesh is very weak,
Divine strength we can know.
As we sense His tender loving care,
Undergirding - lifting us up,
Giving assurance of His faithfulness,
Filling our empty cup,
Our spirits are revived-
Rejoicing floods our souls-
Vibrant vessels once again
Ready to serve within the fold.
Christ is the Light when all is dark,
And we've missed our goals and plans.
He's the stabilizing force beneath our wings,
And He Always Understands.
"Thou knowest my downsitting and my uprising,
Thou understandest my thought afar off."
