A Life of Trust

Psalm 40

Deep down in a hole

like where Joseph was thrown by his brothers,

left alone to die

I waited and cried

’til I heard a new song rise,

’til I heard a new song rise 


A life of trust, a life of trust 

When we are afraid or weak

a life of trust is deepening

A life of trust


Neck deep in the mud,

I remembered my friend Jeremiah 

left to ache and starve

I waited and cried 

’til I felt my body rise,

’til I felt my body rise
