When there is no Reason

When there is no reason for hope,
I’ll keep hoping.
When it seems that my world is falling apart;
When I look around me and everything’s broken,
I’ll try to believe and to hand you my heart.

You say that I’ve been made right with you.
Your undeserved kindness declares I am free.
You say that nothing I’m going through
Can stand between you and your patience with me.

When there is no reason to love,
You keep loving.
You carry the world and my life in your hands.
When I’ve been unfaithful to you, you remind me,
You’re fair, and you’re just, and your faithfulness stands.

You say that I’ve been made right with you.
Your undeserved kindness declares I am free.
You say that nothing I’m going through
Can stand between you and your patience with me.

When all of my thoughts and my actions condemn me,
My mouth offers curses, my heart bitterness.
When I run to evil and can’t seem to find peace,
You offer assurance of your righteousness.

You say that I’ve been made right with you.
Your undeserved kindness declares I am free.
You say that nothing I’m going through,
Can stand between you and your patience with me.

When there is no reason for hope,
I’ll keep hoping.
When it seems that my world is falling apart;
When I look around me and everything’s broken,
I’ll try to believe and to hand you my heart.

Written during a time of heartache and pain on 1/9/11, inspired by Romans 3 and 4. Dedicated to those I love who are struggling, when there is no reason.
