~ A Speck of Gold ~


A Speck of Gold


Oh Lord! Within my darkest hour,

When stormy clouds hang low,
When disappointments are my lot;
It cheers my heart to know ~

Thou Rock, higher than I, and so
The storm can’t reach this realm.
This peaceful place where I may go
When heart is overwhelmed.

Yes, Thou are there, always so near.
And with Thine outstretched arm:
Thou liftest up this soul of mine,
And givest me great calm.


Thy presence is a balm to me
As I go through each trial.
One day I’ll understand ~ after
I’ve suffered for a while.

At time when circumstances seem
Darker than night to me:
Thou Light, Thou Mighty Comforter
Art Everything to me!

Thou hast designed each trial of fire
My dross to burn away.
O, may it leave a speck of gold
To give to Thee one day!

AleB
