Sometimes it seems this road will never end.
Long and winding, rough and steep
I look and look, but all I see are turns and bends.
One day I wake up with hope in bloom
Sun is shining, birds are singing
I get knocked back down, that very afternoon.
I know all the right responses my heart should say
“God, it’s about Your glory.” “I choose to trust You.”
And so on and so forth, but sometimes these seem just a bit gray.
I never saw myself in this particular struggle
It never occurred to me that I could face this.
Yes, some days are better than others,
Yes, I am still choosing to trust
But Lord, I often wonder what You are doing,
And words being written down have now become “a must!”.
I am in this struggle not for my lifetime,
I know that the road will truly end.
I just need to let You know,
I am weary Of all of the turns and all the bends.
Hold my head up, don’t let it hang.
Shut the mouth of the enemy
Who brings nothing but shame.
Today, I rise up off my knees
Thankful I brought my feelings to You
Even if it does make me look weak.
Today, tomorrow, and forever, I know
You alone can make me strong
You alone know where I am on this road
When what I see is all the wrong.
1 How long, LORD? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and day after day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
3 Look on me and answer, LORD my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death,
4 and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the LORD’s praise,
for he has been good to me.
