Hold Us Fast

Pieces of our world
Sheer off
Plunging into the waters
Changing the tides
Is it the exception
Or is it the new rule
It is too soon to know
Too late to be ready
Life on the precipice
Brings fear and despair

You alone O God
Can give us life
For our life comes 
From you alone
Hear our prayers
Steady our spirits
Hold us fast
Amidst the chaos

Weak and weary
Pushed and gut-punched
We need you now
As ever before
Grace for our mistakes
Strength for our tomorrows
Solid ground we seek
A rock on which to stand
A trustworthy truth
In a world of too many lies

You alone O God 
Can give us life
For our life comes
From you alone
Hear our prayers
Steady our spirits
Hold us fast
Amidst the chaos
