YOU HELD ME UP

YOU HELD ME UP 
Psalm 94:18


No sooner did I say, “My foot is slipping,”
As endless stress and worry filled my cup,
When troubles overwhelmed and doubts assailed me,
Your mercy and your kindness held me up.

Even when I hid from You and failed You,
Even when I squandered grace divine,
Even when in folly I refused You,
Tenderly You whispered, “You are Mine.”

You lavished me with life in all its fullness,
You answered every prayer I ever prayed,
Bestowing on me favor upon favor,
Even though I faltered and I strayed.

My faith’s enlivened by Your Holy Spirit,
Kindling in my soul love’s fiery flame,
For every promise made find its fulfillment,
Each time I pray in Your all-hallowed Name.
