WHEN WE WERE IN THE DARKEST NIGHT
And wondered if our eyes would ever see the light
You were there Lord.
When we were in the stormy gale
And wondered if we'd ever live in peace again
You were there Lord
You were there in the struggle
You were there in the fight
You were there all the time.

We praise You, the God of our yesterdays
We praise You, the God who is here today
We praise You - our God as tomorrow comes.

And whatever lies ahead
Whatever roads our grateful hearts will come to tread
You'll be there Lord
We will fix our eyes on You,
And know that there is grace enough to see us through
You'll be there Lord.
You'll be there in the struggle
You'll be there in the fight
You'll be there all the time

We praise You, the God of our yesterdays
We praise You, the God who is here today
We praise You - our God as tomorrow comes
We thank You - for grace in our yesterdays
We thank You - for peace in our hearts today
We thank You - our joy, as tomorrow comes.
We will trust God.

You're always closer than we know
Always more involved and in control
We will trust our lives to You -
The One who was and is and is to come

Matt Redman
