In times of tragedy
We look for God
Asking Him for meaning
For our very brief life

Lord remind me of love complete
Give me the things I need
My hope is in You
So that the trouble will not defeat

Lord, oh Lord my King
Touch my soul deep
Deeper than my heartache and pain
This tragedy brings to me

Open up my eyes to see
Touch my frame
Encourage me
Let me know you are here

Do not let the roaring waters drown me
Stop the mountains before they slip
Remember my name is on your hand
Lord do not forget

One day soon
I will stand before Your throne
Not by what I’ve done
By Jesus and Him alone

Until then strengthen me
So that my life will be anchored in You
Fill me with Your joy
Pour Your peace on me
