Jesus, Your love for me never ends;
Only in You have I found such a friend;
My rock and my fortress, mighty are You
My gracious redeemer, faithful and true.
When I hear Your sweet Spirit speaking to me,
At the sound of Your voice, I fall on my knees;
As I seek Your face, my eyes heavenward raise,
And I sing out to You with a heart full of praise.
This life is too hard to live without You,
Only Your grace can carry me through;
So mold this poor clay into a work of Your hands,
A clean, worthy vessel You can trust with Your plan.
My utmost desire, Lord, is to serve you well,
To glorify your name as Your story I tell;
So others will know that Your love never ends,
And only in You can they find such a friend.

for adversity. (Proverbs 17:17)
