Where's the strength to keep my hopes up?
What future do I have to keep me going?
I love God because he listened to me,
listened as I begged for mercy.
He listened so intently
as I laid out my case before him.
Death stared me in the face,
hell was hard on my heels.
Up against it,
I didn't know which way to turn;
then I called out to God for help:
"Please, God!" I cried out.
"Save my life!"
God is gracious—
it is he who makes things right,
our most compassionate God.
God takes the side of the helpless;
When I was at the end of my rope, he saved me.
Psalm 116:1-6 Message
