“Sovereign Over Us”
by Aaron Keyes, Bryan Brown, and Jack Mooring:
There is strength within the sorrow,
There is beauty in our tears.
And You meet us in our mourning,
With a love that casts out fear.
You are working in our waiting.
You’re sanctifying us,
When beyond our understanding,
You’re teaching us to trust.
Your plans are still to prosper,
You have not forgotten us.
You’re with us in the fire and the flood.
You’re faithful forever,
Perfect in love,
You are sovereign over us.
You are wisdom unimagined:
Who could understand Your ways?
Reigning high above the Heavens,
Reaching down in endless grace,
You’re the lifter of the lowly,
Compassionate and kind.
You surround and You uphold me,
And Your promises are my delight.
Your plans are still to prosper…
Even what the enemy means for evil:
You turn it for our good,
You turn it for our good and for Your glory.
Even in the valley, You are faithful:
You’re working for our good,
You’re working for our good and for Your glory.
