Psalm 193


O Lord you have given me new hope.

You hold me up because of your love.

Everyday I find strength to go on

Because you are there beside me.


Worthless as I feel,

You hold me up and call me yours.

Days of fear and grief

Can all surpass,

Because of your love for me.


You are my Lord,

My strength;

You are here to catch me

Even before I fall.


How can I deserve this love?

How can I ever repay this gift?


I rest in the confidence that you are great;

And in your arms I can finally rest,

Because you tell me I am yours.
