Brought to you by CML team These lyrics sung by Crossway have ministered to me time and time again. I hope you can draw strength and inspiration from them also :
When I Hear the Thunder
Sometimes at night I cry myself to sleep After everybody else has gone to bed Knowing once again I've gotten in too deep And the waters will soon be above my head And I beg of you to change the world around me So tomorrow won't be looking quite so dim And I awake to the waters deep enough to drown me But through it all you taught me how to swim Chorus: And when I hear the thunder and I think I'm going under I remember you're the lifter of my head You've had a thousand chances to change my circumstances But thank you, Lord, for changing me instead.
There are times I can't help feeling lost Like a ship drifting on the open sea And the wind and waves leave me pitched and tossed And a storm begins to build inside of me And I beg of you to change the world around me As fear and faith are fighting for control Amid the raging waters swirling all around me You've become the anchor for my soul Chorus: And when I hear the thunder and I think I'm going under I remember you're the lifter of my head You've had a thousand chances to change my circumstances But thank you, Lord, for changing me instead.
