The Joy of Trusting Him


Little Amy holding dad

I heard her first cry and it was beautiful
I’ve never been happier hearing one cry
The agony and the tension was overcome
By that beautiful and confused cry
Finally she had arrived to make a home with us


Strange how the waiting season vanishes so quickly
In the middle of waiting it seems like forever
But then it happens and the agony is gone
The wounds and the scars witness the miracle
And they become marks of joy unending


With every grace and blessing God gives comes true joy
Not in the removal of total pain and suffering
But in the assurance that we have one who looks after us
One who sees beyond what we see
And truly cares for us more than we ever will know


Sad that sometimes we still doubt him
Even after he’s answered our greatest longings
Odd that future longings can make us forget his commitment
To think now he doesn’t care when he’s been so consistent
Tragic that we might even get bitter with him


We praise you Lord for your unending love and grace
For this precious blessing you’ve bestowed on us
Thank you for hearing our prayers and the ones we didn’t know to make
For your kindness and your gracious sovereign hand
Teach us to see that hand and hold more tightly


Though the future is unknown we know we are safe with you
We are never happier and safer than in your able, loving hands
Lord, teach our feeble hearts to trust and seek refuge in you
Turn our countless doubts and worries to trust
Give us the joy of a little child who trusts their Father
