Though the flood waters rise

Threaten to overtake me

Darkness of night descends

Dawn of morning light seems so very far away

I will incline my ear to hear

The Lord is singing over me

My heart will be strengthened and encouraged

I will rejoice in the Lord my God

Though obstacles surround me

I will dare to jump over them

Confident and sure

For nothing is too hard for the Lord

Though all come against me

I will remain steadfast in God’s firm foundation

When I feel all alone

And none go with me

I will incline my ear to hear

The Lord singing over me in His loving-kindness

The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.

Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord will command His loving-kindness in the daytime,
And in the night His song shall be with me—
A prayer to the God of my life.

Psalm 42:8
