When the Shadows Come



by Ron Panzer

June 5, 2012



When the shadows come and fear grows within,
we trust in Him who never fails.

When death threatens and all seems lost,
we trust in Him who is ever near.

When uncertainty overwhelms and our path unclear,
we trust in Him who is the way.

When hearts race and limbs tremble,
we trust in Him who never fails.

Though wishing to deny what we see,
we trust in Him who never fails.

Though hunger, sickness and pain attack,
we trust in Him who never fails.

When uncertainty and doubt make us falter,
we trust in Him whose name is Love.

When all hope seems lost and enemies surround,
we trust in Him whose name is Friend.

When we've tried our all and met defeat,
we lean on Him who is King of kings.

When the shadows come and fear grows within,
We praise His name and know He is with us always!

As nations sink and fall, one by one,
we trust in Him who never fails.

When wars and rumors of war strike terror within,
we trust in Him who never fails.

When darkness comes and covers the land,
we trust in Him who never fails.

When we look out upon a sea of suffering,
He calls out sweetly, "love them, love is the answer."

When the shadows come,
we know the "bright Morning Star" will follow!

He shines like lightning and,
His glory reaches beyond all that is!

Wondrously merciful, He covers all our sin,
Saving those who humbly take refuge at His feet.

No more will these shadows come!
No more shall we feel alone!

No more shall we cry!
He will be with us!

No more will the darkness trouble!
He is alive, our King, our Love, our God!
