Our Father sees us going wrong
but He knows we won’t for long
forsake His revealed way for paths of sorrow.
His hands remain outstretched
even though our souls are vexed;
His mercies flow anew with each “tomorrow”.
Reach out and up to Him without Whom we’ll never win
and don’t believe the lies of condemnation!
Jehovah God is ours despite sin’s blackened towers
in guilt and in discouraging frustration.
Clasp His mighty hand today,
He’ll make straight each crooked way –
and bring us out of sin and its great sorrow.
Remember that His hand’s outstretched
to receive you to His breast –
and bring us safely home to each tomorrow.
