Poem: When I Don’t Understand

Lord, in the times I don’t understand,
Even then let me trust what You’ve planned.
You name the stars and count grains of sand.
You are the one holding my hand.

You are the one who suffered for me.
It is to you that I bow the knee.
Humbly I stand at Calvary’s tree.
Open my eyes, Lord, help me to see.

Only You can turn darkness to light.
Only Jesus can give blind men sight.
Only You can turn weakness to might.
Only you, Lord, can turn wrongs to right.

In this life I might not understand.
You are the rock upon which I stand.
This, Lord, my life, I place in your hand,
Trusting always in your perfect plan.

  1. Sensitively written Leah; it reminded me of one I wrote a while ago, that you may remember:

    “Come, O come, thou captive of sin,
    Thy King reigns on high in great power.
    Thou hast slain the great dragon the prowled within,
    But thou facest another this hour.
    ‘Be strong and courageous’ this is thy command;
    In faith, hearken unto His voice.
    In victory today thou surely wilt stand;
    If now thou wilt make the wise choice!”

      1. Not exactly, the poem above was imbeded in a short story I wrote for one of Vision Forum’s story contests, but it sounds similar to the one we used at the concert.
        Did you ever read the poem/song from the concert?

  2. “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” John 10:28
