Our Strength

When the word falls apart

When violence threatens all life

Our fear filled hearts pause and remember

The truth of who we are, in Christ

Give us courage to lay down our lives

O' Lord, be our strength this very night.


​Jesus, may we trust in Your presence

Fear of death reminds us who You are

You are our life's very essence

Our strength in the fiercest battle

Keeping safe our eternal souls

As You prepare us for the journey home.
