The Arising To An Eternal Hope

I arise early in the day,

Sitting still as I pray.

I call on you, oh Lord,

In hopes that I will be restored.

By Your Spirit do You give me strength,

As I am weary and stretched to great lengths.

Pull me out of the pit of despair,

As my hope I do put in You and Your name do I declare.

For You set me on an eternal foundation,

And by Your sacrifice do I have eternal salvation.
