IS IT ANY WONDER

IS IT ANY WONDER

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

MY HEART IS ANXIOUS STILL

FORGETTING ALL HE’S PROMISED

NEGLECTING TO BE STILL

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

MY BITTER SOUL CRIES OUT

DRENCHED WITH ENDLESS SORROW

CONSUMED BY FEAR AND DOUBT

 

IT IS ANY WONDER

THE TEARS DO CEASELESS FLOW

NOT STOPPING TO BE NEAR HIM

NOT KNOWING WHERE TO GO

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

THE SUN HAS CEASED TO SHINE

THE DARK CLOUDS OF TOMORROW

LOOM BIGGER ALL THE TIME

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

I’VE BARELY HEARD MY NAME

WHISPERED FROM THE HEAVENS

AGAIN, AND AGAIN

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

HE PATIENTLY AWAITS

LONGING TO BE NEAR ME

TO GIFT ME WITH HIS GRACE

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

I COLLAPSED WITH NEEDLESS GRIEF

LAYING AT THE FEET OF HIM

WHO LONGS TO GIVE RELIEF

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

HIS ARMS ARE OPEN WIDE

HE LIFTS ME GENTLY TO HIM

HOLDS ME CLOSELY TO HIS SIDE

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

I SOB INTO HIS CHEST

KNOWING THAT I’VE FINALLY FOUND IN HIM

MY PLACE OF PEACE AND REST

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

HE WIPES AWAY MY TEARS

SPEAKS PEACE INTO MY WEARY SOUL

AND BREAKS DOWN ALL MY FEARS

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

HE CALMS MY ANXIOUS HEART

AND TURNS MY EYES TOWARDS HEAVEN

AND GIVES ME A FRESH START

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

MY LORD IS EVER NEAR

HIS SPIRIT LIVES INSIDE ME

RESIDING EVER THERE

 

IS IT ANY WONDER

I DO NOT NEED TO FEAR

THE ABUNDANCE OF LIFE’S TRIALS

FOR MY SAVOIR LIVES HERE.

 

IS IT ANY WONDER?
