In the face of challenge, you are our hope;
in the midst of chaos, you are our refuge.
When the walls are pressing inwards,
you are there to expand our horizons.
When all seems to be lacking inspiration,
you are there to light the way for us.
In doubt, I will continue to trust you;
in fear, I will not turn away from the path.
When others offer no consolation,
I will seek out your compassion.
When others have no kind words,
I will avail myself of your kindness.
When those who promised, break their promises,
I will trust in the inheritance that you have given us.
When the world looms large in shadows,
I will wait until you bring the dawn.
When darkness threatens to engulf this country,
I will feel reassured by your prophetic word.
