You Are My Salvation

You Are My Salvation
Verse 1
When the waves are crashing and the storm won’t calm
When I’ve lost direction and I can’t find home
When my guiding stars are hidden by the clouds
And the waves are surging in to pull me down
I will call on Him who calms the raging seas
Trusting he’ll be stronger than the storms in me
When my journey takes me to the great unknowns
You are my Salvation

Verse 2
When I’ve lost myself and fallen to my sin
When my shame blinds me to all the grace you give
When I’ve placed my trust in lies that I’ve believed
And I wonder how my God could still love me
Christ is interceding when I cannot pray
Groaning words unknown that I may still be saved
My lament for sin now turns to songs of praise
You are my Salvation

Verse 3
When the night surrounds me and my fears begin
When my grief is threatening to do me in
When the pain is crushing and I can’t escape
When the strength I had is slowly drained away
Even in death’s shadow on the darkest night
There is not one breath that you have not supplied
Give me faith my Lord that with the Son I’ll rise
You are my Salvation

Verse 4
When the dawn breaks through and we are truly healed
When we climb the stairs to what will be revealed
When our days are lighted by the Risen Lamb
When our tears are wiped away by God’s own hand
When creation’s birth is finally made complete
When the guests are seated at the Savior’s feast
What a day of gladness when we join their song
You are my Salvation
