Take Heart

“Take Heart”


“We His childrentake heart

In God’s tender care

Arms around us

He is with us everywhere

When the path leads through the night

And every dream has all but died

We can fall into His love

Whatever comes


Take heart

He has overcome the world

He has overcome the world

Fear not

He has opened Heaven’s door’

Conquered death forevermore

Take heart


Peace He gives us

Not as this world knows

Still abiding

On the darkest, desperate road

Tears may wet the ground below

Sorrow come to steal our hope

But we can turn into His grace

And hide away


In this world, we’ll have troubles

Burdens and scars

But we have a King

Who has been where we are


Take heart”


“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.”  John 16:33


Thank you, Shannon Wexelberg, for writing/singing a song that speaks to my

sometimes broken and often challenged heart.  God is my Valentine!
