Strength for your Journey

Image result for strength for your journey

Habakkuk 3:16-19 New International Version

16 I heard and my heart pounded,
my lips quivered at the sound;
decay crept into my bones,
and my legs trembled.
Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity
to come on the nation invading us.
17 Though the fig tree does not bud

and there are no grapes on the vines,

though the olive crop fails
and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.

19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to tread on the heights.

For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.

Refrain

I will be, I will be, I will be

strength for the journey.

I will be, I will be, I will be

strength for the journey.

1. There is a road meant for you to travel.

Narrow and steep is the shepherd’s way,

and as you say, “Yes,”

letting me guide you,

I will be strength for the journey.

2. There is a cross meant for you to carry.

There is a cross meant for you alone,

and as you bow down                                                                                               in

humble surrender,                                                                                                    I

will be strength for the journey.

3. How many times have you doubted my word?

How many times must I call your name?

And as you say, “Yes,”

letting me love you,                                                                                                      I

will be strength for the journey.
