In awe of Your love

From the depths of my despair
When all seems fought and lost
And all I have left is the cost
I call to You, O Lord

Oh will you hear my cry
Must we wither and die
Hear our cry O Lord
Listen to our pleas for deliverence

If You kept a record of our wrongs
Who could escape Your wrath
But You forgive us and You cleanse us
So again we stand in awe of you

I wait, eager for Your touch
I wait, knowing with a faithful trust
You'll come, like dawn for tired watchmen
You'll come, You'll carry us home

If You kept a record of our wrongs
Who could escape Your wrath
But You forgive us and You cleanse us
So again we stand in awe of you

All the peoples of the world
Come trust in the one true God
His love never flickers, never falters
Always ready when our whole world alters
And we find ourselves falling again...

If You kept a record of our wrongs
Who could escape Your wrath
But You forgive us and You cleanse us
So again we stand in awe of you

Again we stand in awe of Your love.

This song was inspired by Psalm 130 while I was reading the 'songs of ascent'. Through several stages of my relationship with God the only way I've progressed is to cry out to the Lord, and this psalm summed up the feelings I was having at the time.
