If I had not Believed

In the middle of despair, when the pain crowds out my hope,

I need a friend, to remind me, again.

I need a word, to console me, again.

“Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
Be gracious and compassionate to me and answer me.

When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You,
“Your face, O Lord, I will seek”

I would have despaired had I not believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.

Wait for and confidently expect the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord.” – Psalm 27:7-8, 13-14
