Courage, dear heart


Courage, dear heart
Take courage, my child.
Courage, dear heart,
Take courage, tonight.

I know right now it all seems so dark
Your hope is wavering
Trust in your Father’s heart
His Love is never-ending

Courage, dear heart
Take courage, my child.
Courage, dear heart,
Take courage, tonight.

Rest in your Abba’s arms,
Let Him see you through.
His Love will never fail,
He’s always there for you

When the night’s endless hours go on and on
And you want to give in and you want to lay down
Don’t give up, fight the pain, fight the dark, fight the lies
with the truth: there is One always fighting for you

Jesus died on the cross, yes he died, fighting darkness
but the dark could not hold him down
For he conquered the grave, yes He rose back to life
And now it's your life he’s fighting to save

Listen close, He is with you in your darkest hour
Listen close, you can hear him say

Courage, dear heart
Take courage, my child.
Courage, dear heart,
Take courage, tonight.

I'm still tweaking the above song lyrics but the chorus is inspired by one of my favorite scene's in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader which I wrote about here.
