Above All, My Hope Is In You
by Alissa M Graham
Above all, You are my Sustainer
My hope is in your goodness
When I crave what will die
Lord revive me in your satisfaction
Above all, You are my Guide
My hope is in your sovereignty
When I lack faith
Lord, reconcile me with your wisdom
Above all, You are my refuge
My hope is in your comfort
When I face loneliness
Lord, rekindle my desire for your love
Above all, You are my defender
My hope is in your mighty Fortress
When I run in fear
Lord, reinforce me in your strength.
Above all, You are my teacher
My hope is in your counsel
When my ignorance is rampant
Lord, reform me in your truth
Above all, You are my Perseverance
My hope is in your eternity
When I start to lose endurance
Lord, refute my fleeting ways with your everlasting attributes
Above all, You, Jesus Christ, are my Saviour
My hope is in your resurrection
When my sin seems overbearing
Lord, remind me of your salvation.
Psalms 71:14, 19-21
But as for me, I will always have hope;
I will praise you more and more.
Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God,
You who have done great things.
Who, O God, is like you?
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter,
You will restore my life again;
from the depths of the earth
You will again bring me up.
You will increase my honor
and comfort me once again.
