Like Night and Day


3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. 4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. 5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
Psalm 30:3-5 KJV
           ~~~~~~~~~~~
Depression drags your soul into the grave
And whispers that this pit is all there is;
Here hope is gone, here darkness does enslave,
Here death does pierce your heart and claims as his.
It seems as if the Lord has turned away,
As if His anger's robbed your faith and dream.
But turn around, my friend, please don't dismay.
He's never left your side; you're still a team.
Reach out to Jesus! Life is in His hand;
His love is like the morning over night.
He holds you in His arms, the dark is banned.
God's grace shines all the time; the future's bright.
           When darkest night of soul weighs down on you,
           The dawn is certain: Christ will see you through.
           ~~~~~~~~~~~


REMEMBER: It is always the darkest before the dawn.
