MY GOD IS GOOD

WHEN YOUR FUTURE SEEMS SO HOPELESS 
AND YOUR HURT WITH NO END IN SIGHT 
THE LORD WILL COMFORT YOU AND HOLD YOU 
THROUGH YOUR LONG AND LONELY NIGHT 
WHEN THIS WORLD HAS USED YOU UP 
AND ITS LIES HAVE LEFT YOU BROKEN 
HIS LOVE CAN HEAL THOSE WOUNDS 
AND HIS WORD YOU CAN TRUST IN 

GOD GAVE YOU A VOICE TO SING 
MY GOD IS GOOD, MY GOD IS LIGHT 
AND GOD GAVE YOU HANDS TO RAISE 
MY GOD IS LOVE, MY GOD IS LIFE 
GOD GAVE YOU A VOICE TO SING 
MY GOD IS GOOD, MY GOD IS LIGHT 
GOD GAVE YOU HANDS TO RAISE 
MY GOD IS LOVE, MY GOD IS LIFE
 

EACH DAY THAT COMES THE MYSTERY UNFOLDS 
LIKE WAVES UPON THE SAND 
THERE IS NO ONE LIKE HIM TO COUNT ON 
NO GREATER FRIEND TO HOLD YOUR HAND 
AND IF THIS WORLD HAS USED YOU UP 
AND ITS LIES HAVE LEFT YOU BROKEN 
HIS LOVE WILL HEAL THOSE WOUNDS 
HIS WORD YOU CAN TRUST IN 

CHORUS 

OUTRO
HE’S THE STRONG AND MIGHTY TOWER 
HE’S THE RULER OF ALL THINGS 
HE’S THE CLEANSING LIVING WATER 
THE ONE WHO CREATION SINGS 
HE’S THE FATHER AND CREATOR 
OH HE’S THE SPIRIT, HE’S THE TRUTH 
HE’S THE REFUGE FROM THE STORM 
AND HE’S GOD TO ME AND YOU 
OH HE’S GOD TO ME AND YOU

A young military man was at the point of taking his life when he remembered my son-in-law Ralph’s entreaty to watch the movie he had produced “Genesis, Paradise Lost.” Instead of cutting his wrists, he felt compelled to rent the movie and in the next couple of hours had a purpose to live. He watched the movie three times in the next few days, then contacted Ralph to tell him that he had saved his life. Ralph, very humbled by this wondrous event, reminded this young man that it was God that had saved him and that he was just God’s messenger, sharing the truth that our God is good and comforts us in our trials so that we can comfort others in their sufferings 2 Co 1:3,4.

God has given each one of us a voice to praise our Lord. So whatever gift you have received, use it to glorify the One (Jesus Christ), who is worthy of our praise.
