New Living Translation (NLT)
16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
Speak to Him
Each day is filled with snares and traps,
The threats are real and great,
Yet his blessings fall on us like raindrops
Amid all of the world’s fears and hate,
We have to toil each new day away,
We must work hard and do our best,
Yet when we hear the night bird’s song
He has us lay down our heads and rest,
Yes, life can be quite difficult,
It can make you breakout in tears,
But instead of wasting all of that effort
Why not send your prayers up to heavenly ears,
There they’ll be heard and answered
By the comfort and healing in his great hands,
When the whole world sits square on our shoulders
He’s been there and completely understands.
Speak to him now, if you’re hurting,
Talk to him just like a friend,
He longs to hear what troubles you so,
On his love you can always depend.
