Rise Up

Though we feel discouraged
And feel we can't go on,
The pressures of life mount up
And hope is almost gone

We want so much to rise up
To that which God has called,
But very little seems to happen
Then we cry out to the Lord

'Why, O God, do I feel this way?
And why so downcast my soul?
I feel so very frustrated with life,
Wondering what the future holds'

But even though we feel this way
God truly understands,
Things don't always happen our way
To suit our man-made plans

For everything comes into place
In God's time, not our own,
For he sees much more than we
And we needn't feel alone

For in due time we shall arise
And spread our wings to soar
Above the clouds of adversity
Where we once were before

The cloak we wore of hopelessness
Is replaced with one of praise
Our hope is renewed as we rejoice
In God's mercies and His grace.
