Bedtime Prayer: In Feast or in Fallow

Four years. Three cancers. My world feels shaken.

But Jesus, my certain hope, endures.

Certain hope.

I love those words!

Verse 1:
When the fields are dry, and the winter is long

Blessed are the meek, the hungry, the poor

When my soul is downcast, and my voice has no song

For mercy, for comfort, I wait on the Lord

In the harvest feast or the fallow ground,

My certain hope is in Jesus found

My lot, my cup, my portion sure

Whatever comes, we shall endure

Whatever comes, we shall endure

Verse 2:
On a cross of wood, His blood was outpoured

He Rose from the ground, like a bird to the sky

Bringing peace to our violence, and crushing death’s door

Our Maker incarnate, our God who provides.


Verse 3
When the earth beneath me crumbles and quakes

Not a sparrow falls, nor a hair from my head

Without His hand to guide me, my shield and my strength

In joy or in sorrow, in life or in death
