When in difficult times...

"Take Heart" is a song I've been loving off of the new Hillsong United album "Aftermath". While listening this morning, I just felt the need to share the lyrics. Whether it's hurting, struggles, frustration, feeling hopeless, confusion, loss, trials - this song is for you. Someone needs this today. Maybe it's you. Listen in. Read it through. Soak it up - ESPECIALLY the second half (which will be in bold). If you're interested, you can download the entire album on Amazon for only $7.99

Listen here


There is a light.
It burns brighter than the sun.
He steals the night.
And casts no shadow.
There is hope.
Should oceans rise and mountains fall.
He never fails.

So take heart.
Let His love lead us through the night.
Hold on to hope.
And take courage again.


In death by love.
The fallen world was overcome.
He wears the scars of our freedom.
In His name.
All our fears are swept away.
He never fails.

So take heart.
Let His love lead us through the night.
Hold on to hope.
And take courage again.


All our troubles.
And all our tears.
God our hope.
He has overcome.

All our failure.
And all our fear.
God our love.
He has overcome.

All our heartache.
And all our pain.
God our healer.
He has overcome.

All our burdens.
And all our shame.
God our freedom.
He has overcome.

All our troubles.
And all our tears.
God our hope.
He has overcome.

All our failures.
And all our fear.
God our love.
He has overcome.

God our justice.
God our grace.
God our freedom.
He has overcome.

God our refuge.
God our strength.
God is with us.
He has overcome.


"I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33 (NLT)
