Let Your light shine down on me....

I just LOVE this song...the first few verses speak so sweetly to my heart. My Jesus is the Calmer of the sea...the Calmer of my heart. In the moments of scary uncertainty, how awesome is it that we can cling to our Lord and He is faithful to calm our hearts. I simply can't fathom His love for me!!! Enjoy this beautiful song...hoping for pathology results tomorrow :)

The Calmer of the sea
Here in this room with me
So gently welcoming
The weakest things in me
You are the blood over
The door of my heart
What pain You spared me from
How could I know it all?

Oh wonderful love, You died for me
The power of Your life is in me

Father, let Your light shine down on me
Father, let Your light shine down on me
NO MATTER WHAT THE DAY OR NIGHT MAY BRING
Father, let Your light shine down on me

Oh Jesus, You became what was my deepest shame
That at Your very name
My calloused heart would change
How could You, oh perfect One
Love me, when I have done nothing that's worthy of
My freedom You have won

Oh wonderful love, You died for me
The power of Your life is in me

Father, let Your light shine down on me
Father, let Your light shine down on me
NO MATTER WHAT THE DAY OR NIGHT MAY BRING
Father, let Your light shine down on me

Open up the heavens
Poor down Your Spirit
HOLD ME GOD
Jesus, wherever You lead
I'll sing harmony
HOLD ME GOD

Father, let Your light shine down on me
Father, let Your light shine down on me
No matter what the day or night may bring
Father, let Your light shine down on me

Great song! Another song that totally touched me when Jay was going through his cancer was "Blessed Be the Name of the Lord" by Tree 63. Just praising God at all times even when the times are really tough. I still cry when I hear it. praying for you guys
