Echoes

When my mind is waging war,
And confusion burns within.
When all hope seems lost,
And death flashes before mine eyes;
His voice echoes,
“Be still,
And know that I am God.”

When I lose sense of direction,
And can’t find the way on my own.
When I’m torn between left and right;
His voice echoes,
“This is the way,
Walk in it.”

In the wilderness,
And the valley.
In the wasteland,
And through my silent season,
His voice echoes,
“Never will I leave you;
Never will I forsake you.”

See, God,
He speaks in the stillness of the night,
And the calmness of the waters.
And when the waters roar,
And the winds rage;
Still, He speaks,
“Peace, Be still!”

Yes!
Even the winds and the waves obey him!
He is mighty in all His ways.
Impossible trembles at the echo of His voice;
Because it knows,
Nothing is too hard for Him.
Do not be afraid;
Do not be dismayed;
He is with you,
Even through the valley of the shadow of death.

Trust in Him.
Wait patiently on Him.
And when you hear His voice echo,
In the quietness of day,
You will know,
He is GOD.
