You Gave Me a Song

by Susan H. Fouts

You gave me a song

When I had none;

When I thought I was nowhere,

Nowhere to belong.

You gave me a prayer

and I knew that You were there.

Ready to hold me,

Ready to care

***

O, Lord, You're my stay

in my times of trouble.

You provided a way for me to walk,

With my head held up high

escaping condemnation.

You are my joy...You're the lifter of my head.

***

The pain was so deep,

More than I could keeep.

Locked up inside

Covered with time,

That grain of sand

became a pearl

When I finally let go

and gave it to the Lord.

***

Jesus, now I think You know

That I love You so.

You're my Lord and Saviour

Your my Prince of Peace.

You gave me a song

and I'll sing until You come

And I'll sing to you in glory

and through eternity.
