Beyond Pain


When our hearts have been
Broken a few too many
Times and we feel just
Too destroyed and all alone,
We hold tight, never give up.

Because mercy falls
With endless grace from Heaven,
Christ reaches for us
He will all our burdens share,
And carry us through despair.

We have victory
Love makes us each champion,
Jesus is with us,
Even should we totter, fall,
We will, in time, rise again.

When darkness surrounds,
We recall it only takes
A crack for the light
To break through and give sweet sight
Of all beauty which survives.

Never defeated,
We are children of the King
We keep our eyes trained
On the purpose, precious love,
Love, love; we never give up.
