In my failures You won’t walk out

In quietness and trust

3. Trust in You | Lauren Daigle

“When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust
I will trust in You”

Lyrics Trust in You

Letting go of every single dream
I lay each one down at Your feet
Every moment of my wandering
Never changes what You see
I’ve tried to win this war, I confess
My hands are weary, I need Your rest
Mighty warrior, King of the fight
No matter what I face, You’re by my side

When You don’t move the mountains
I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust
I will trust in You

Truth is, You know what tomorrow brings
There’s not a day ahead You have not seen
So in all things be my life and breath
I want what You want, Lord, and nothing less

When You don’t move the mountains
I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust
I will trust in You
I will trust in You

You are my strength and comfort
You are my steady hand
You are my firm foundation
The rock on which I stand
Your ways are always higher
Your plans are always good
There’s not a place where I’ll go
You’ve not already stood

When You don’t move the mountains
I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters
I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers
As I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust
I will trust in You
I will trust in You
I will trust in You
I will trust in You

Wait upon the Lord
And hope will rise
As stars appear when day is dimming

A steadfast spirit within me
To rest in You aloneI rest in You alone
In You alone

6. Steady My Heart | Kari Jobe

“Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart”

Lyrics Steady My Heart

Wish it could be easy
Why is life so messy?
Why is pain a part of us?
There are days I feel like
Nothing ever goes right
Sometimes it just hurts so much

But You’re here
You’re real
I know I can trust You

Even when it hurts
Even when it’s hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
‘Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart [x2]

I’m not gonna worry
I know that You’ve got me
Right inside the palm of your hand
Each and every moment
What’s good and what gets broken
Happens just the way You plan

You are here
You’re real
I know I can trust You

Even when it hurts
Even when it’s hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
‘Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart [x2]

And I will run to You
And find refuge in Your arms
And I will sing to You
‘Cause of everything You are

You steady my heart [x2]

Even when it hurts
Even when it’s hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
‘Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart [x2]

I’m not gonna worry
I know that you’ve got me
Right inside the palm of your hand

8. Als dit het is | Matthijn Buwalda

“Als dit het is, dan is het goed.
’t is op z’n minst vandaag genoeg.”

Lyrics Als dit het is

De moeilijkste genade, is genade met mezelf;
En hoe meer ik dat besef, hoe minder hoog ik doelen stel.
Er komt altijd wel een kans voorbij, die ik niet missen mag.
maar laatste liet ik er toch een lopen, en ik had een prima dag.
En ik dacht:

Refrein:
Als dit het is, dan is het goed. { Dat is het goed. }
’t is op z’n minst vandaag genoeg.
En ik weet ook niet hoe het leven moet.
Maar als dit het is, dan is het goed.

Dus als ik nu gebeld word, neem ik lang niet altijd op.
Het zal vast heel belangrijk zijn, maar dat is het dan morgen nog.
Niet alles te bereiken, is mijn onbereikbaar streven.
Want het leven past niet vandaag, als ik vandaag nog wat leven.
En ik dacht heel even:

Refrein:
Als dit het is, dan is het goed. { ..is het goed. }
’t is op z’n minst vandaag genoeg. {..vandaag genoeg }
En ik weet ook niet hoe het leven moet. {..moet }
Maar als dit het is, dan is het goed.

Kijk mij m’n zegeningen tellen, op een klapstoel in de tuin.
En misschien ligt morgen heel mijn leven, wel grandioos in pijn.
Of misschien ook niet, God weet het en dat is me wel genoeg.
Misschien ook niet, God weet het en dan komt,
dan komt het ooit weer goed.

Dan komt het ooit weer goed. { Als dit het is, dan is het goed. }
Vanzelf wel goed, echt waar,
dan komt het ooit weer goed. { Als dit het is, dan is het goed. }
Hier of aan de overkant weer goed.

Als dit het is, dan is het goed. { Als dit het is, dan is het goed. }
Als dit het is, dan is het goed

9. U bent Sterker | Mozaiek Worship

“En moet ik door een dal van lijden gaan
U bent sterker
en als ik val en niet meer op kan staan
U bent sterker”

Lyrics U bent Sterker

Zoals een sprankje licht het duister breekt
U bent sterker
Mijn angst verstilt wanneer uw liefde spreekt
U bent sterker

Licht dat altijd schijnt
Liefde zonder eind

En moet ik door een dal van lijden gaan
U bent sterker
en als ik val en niet meer op kan staan
U bent sterker

Licht dat altijd schijnt
Liefde zonder eind

Refrein
Jezus U bent meer dan genoeg voor mij
Jezus U blijft mijn God in eeuwigheid

En als m’n leven hier ten einde loopt
U bent sterker
Want aan de horizon gloort nieuwe hoop
U bent sterker

Refrein

Jezus, U bent en blijft
Meer dan genoeg voor mij
Jezus, U bent en blijft
Mijn God in eeuwigheid

Refrein

Licht dat altijd schijnt
Liefde zonder eind
