lyrics

With Your story unfolding
And my life on the page
There have been twists and turns and moments I've aged
And it's so hard to see
The role I'm to play
As the final chapters draw closer each day

When I'm lost and weary
When there seems no way to go
Will You come near me, that I may know

Author of me, my mind is heavy
I'm on my knees, losing my faith
Give me some hope to take one more step, to turn a new page

The next chapter's uncertain
But the ending is sure
And I'm clinging for life to each whispering word
'Cause each word brings redemption
Each page makes me new
Every moment I'm living brings me closer to You

When I'm lost and weary
When there seems no way to go
Will You draw near me, that I may know

Author of me, my mind is heavy
I'm on my knees, losing my faith
Give me some hope to take one more step, to turn a new page

But then it all seems so simple
It's ringing so true
Most days I know that my story is the story of You

'Cause your blood is the ink
Your death is the pen
May my character flow from the work of Your hand

When I'm lost and weary
When there seems no way to go
Will you come near me, that I may know

Author of me, my mind is heavy
I'm on my knees, losing my faith
Give me some hope to take one more step, to turn a new page
Author of me, my mind is heavy
I'm on my knees, coming undone
Give me some hope to walk in the light, to live in the Sun
