A slow decline into the dark,
And we will walk the vale of tears
A broken family torn apart;
The memories of childhood days
Like daggers in our shattered minds,
Potential gone, the future lost,
The dreadful scarring of the heart.
This is the year our son will shine
And we’ll respond with tears of joy
To see him conquer in the fight!
No fear in love, he’s held secure,
Salvation certain, come what may,
When heaven touches earth in him
May eyes be opened to the sight.
A miracle to make him whole,
A God-encounter, Spirit’s power,
To heal his body, mind and soul?
Where should we go, what should we do
To access heaven’s open door?
Our faces always look to You,
Our ears are listening for Your call.
The cloud lies thick upon the way;
We stumble often in the dark
But always You’re our Strength and Stay
I do not know what lies ahead,
The path You’ve planned for us to walk,
I’ll leave the future up to You
And trust the Lord for grace each day.
