Upon You, Lord, all my cares I cast,
Knowing the raging tempest will pass.
Peace was mine before even I asked.
Your love is deep, Your mercy is vast.
When the sky is overcast,
When my thoughts are downcast,
And when I'm feeling harassed,
You will hold me fast -
For Your Word is steadfast,
And Your power is unsurpassed.

In Your hands I place my burden,
Knowing You heal the hurting.
Every promise You made is certain.
I can feel faith within me stirring.

I lay down my heavy load.
You lead me into peace mode.
When faith I upload,
Then victory I download,
I know the Word -
So I have the code.

Thank You, Lord, for calming my nerves.
When Life throws me a curve,
And I am tempted to swerve,
You give grace I could never deserve.
When Your words I observe,
I tap into my spiritual reserves.
Stress is not my master -
Only You do I serve.

Amen.
