In the Deepest Night

The stars that shine in the deepest night
Are the stars that hold the richest light,
And the beacon on the storm-filled sea
Is the guide with the greatest gift of peace.

The bell that rings when you’re far from home
Is the one that sounds with the sweetest tone,
And the whisper that calls when you’ve lost your way
Becomes the voice of strength for each new day.

The hand outstretched when all hope is gone
Is a friend to show you the face of dawn.
And the love that holds through the hardest ways,
Is the grace of God given for your days.

The gift that comes when you’re all alone
Is the Father’s touch saying you’re His own,
And the praise that comes from a wounded soul
Is the song that dreams of a heart made whole.

I will trust in Him who holds the star.
I will trust in Him who knows my heart.
I will trust Him.
