Take this fainted heart.
The world is pulling me down again. My heart is in chaos. It is overwhelmed by so many things that the world is throwing. So harsh. So discouraging. The tiniest hope is being taken away and my heart is close to giving up.
Take these tainted hands.
Look at what’s left in me. Came the moments of endless fights with setbacks and trials, and my hands are now tired of reaching out; waiting for hope; looking for a lifeline.
Wash me in Your love. Come like grace again.
In the midst of my fight, I saw You. I felt Your love. It washes over me. It suddenly covers my scars and conceals my pain. Every bit of hurt is being healed by Your grace. I remember how it never fails to save me from my distress. Your love and grace. So vast. So wonderful.
Even when my strength is lost, I’ll praise You.
My heart will still find rest in Your presence. My hands, though they are weary, will always be stretched out towards heaven. My flesh obeys my soul’s desire to worship You despite the hardships and trials.
Even when I have no song, I’ll praise You.
You hear and understand my groanings. You see through my smiles. You feel my pain in every tear. And though I do not have the voice to sing my psalms of praise to You anymore, I will still praise You with all that I am.
Even when it’s hard to find the words, louder then I’ll sing Your praise.
I often run out of words to shout in prayers. I often just cry silently for all the endured hurt. But You look at me and You remind me that You have my heart and You feel all its pain. I cannot comprehend the perfect words to describe Your love and faithfulness, but my heart’s passionate desire to worship You shall express everything that is contained in it.
Take this mountain weight.
The burden seems too heavy for me to carry. My knees are trembling because of long moments of endurance. I stand in surrender, acknowledging that I cannot carry it all alone.
Take these ocean tears.
Every night, when no one’s around, when it’s just You and me, You see how I cry my heart out and how I vent my feelings out. All the kept emotions that I always try to hide from the world, You see them all. You see how vulnerable I am when I’m alone with You.
Hold me through the trial.
You did not let go. I know you never will. You stay the same. You will never leave me even when the world seems to drift away from me. You are here not just during my highs, but also during my lows when I especially need You.
Come like hope again.
You promise a beautiful rainbow after my storms. You give me the assurance that life is always worth living. You give me the encouragement to joyfully look forward to every tomorrow.
Even when the fight seems lost, I’ll praise You.
When everything seems to be failing and getting out of control, that is when I learn how to trust in You even more. When it seems like I am so close to being defeated, You still give me lots of reasons to rejoice in You and praise You.
Even when it hurts like hell, I’ll praise You.
The world always finds ways to tear me down and crush my faith in You, and it hurts. It gets tiring to continuously fight in a war I did not prepare for. But despite hearing every word of discouragement, I can still rejoice and be glad because You always remind me of the victory that You have promised.
Even when it makes no sense to sing, louder then I’ll sing Your praise.
When things do not seem to change, I admit that I doubt sometimes. There were moments when I thought You were not listening and looking because my situation does not seem to progress. But you embarass my fears by proving that You work mightily in my life and that I have no reason to doubt because Your faithfulness to me in the past is enough proof that You are able to get me through every situation.
And my heart burns only for You. You’re all… You’re all I want.
You are the reason for my everything. Your love is the reason why my heart is beating. I cannot think of any reason not to praise You because Your Name is all my soul desires to worship forever.
And my soul waits only for You, and I will sing ’til the moment has come.
I am always looking forward to that moment when I am finally with You. I am excited to be in Your arms and enjoy Your love and grace forever and until eternity.
Even when the moment comes, I’ll praise You.
When everything is already in place, and when my heart has nothing else but Your peace, I will still continue to praise You.
Even when the fight is won, I’ll praise You.
You promised victory, and as I conquer the battles, I will still praise You with thanksgiving because I am forever grateful.
Even when my time on earth is done, louder then I’ll sing Your praise.
I will always sing Your praise.
