Have you experienced some wounds that are deep?
Trust your Abba, Father–His promises He’ll keep…
He redeems you from distress or any kind of destruction.
Look to Him and listen for His wisdom and instruction.
He’s stated that He’s numbered even the hairs upon your head.
He’ll give to you renewed hope as you seek to be Spirit led.
With love and with compassion, He heals the brokenhearted;
His faithfulness to care for His children has never departed.
Cast all your cares upon Him–then, you’ll have nothing to fear.
As you draw close to Him, He’s promised to also draw near.
God’s plans for you are of well-being, and not of things bad.
He’s your loving Abba, Father–the very best Dad!
