I wrote this for a class this week.  It has to do with the upcoming birth of my daughter and the struggles before hand.

A Song of Praise.  During the life of Wesley.

After a year of Great Blessing from the Lord

I called unto the Lord, and he heard me

I delivered a plea unto my God, and he responded

When times looked dark, the Lord was my light.

He was my strength, when my hands were low.

 

Give praise to the Lord, all the earth

Give praise to the Lord, all the sea

Give praise to the Lord, all the starry hosts

For our Lord is worthy of praise

 

The womb was empty, but you have provided

After many tears, my God has shown favor

You have removed my sadness

And remember me in my time of distress

 

I called to the Lord, and he heard me

I delivered a plea unto my God, and he responded

 

My situation was bleak, doubt had encircled me

Desperation ensnared me, hope was lost

Yet, in my time of trouble, you were there

During my days of anxiety, you lifted me up

 

Why would God consider me?

Why would he listen to my prayers?

I do not consider the ant, in its distress

But my God has shown me grace, during my time of grief

 

Give praise to the Lord, all the earth

Give praise to the Lord, all the sea

Give praise to the Lord, all the starry hosts

For Our Lord is worthy of praise

 

I called to the Lord, and he heard

I delivered a plea unto my God, and he responded
