Five Minute Friday- Praise

When clouds of darkness

Close in.

And shadows overcome.

I praise my Lord and Savior,

The King and risen Son.

When death called out,

knocked on my child’s door,

I praised my God above,

“Take him if you must”,

As my praise was lifted more.

I praise the Lord Jesus,

In my sorrow.

I praise Him in my pain.

I praise you Lord Jesus

In my tomorrow as today.

When joy delivered beauty,

in babies born too soon.

I praised Him in the quiet

of a beeping NICU room.

I praise His Holy Name,

In the fear and the pain,

In the mystery of the blessing

His Name I’ll lift again.

When addiction grips

Loved ones, with force

I cannot contend.

I lift a praise to my Savior,

my Redeemer, my friend.

I have praised you in the good, Lord.

I praise You in the bad.

I praise Him in the quiet

The emotional turmoil I’ve had.

And when this time has ended,

and my ticket arrives for home.

I will praise you in that journey, Lord.

As my breath becomes no more.

I’ll praise you with the angels,

I’ll praise you with my last breath.

I’ll praise you in the new beginning,

The one that follows death.

Forever, I will praise You.
