Assurance, Forgiveness, Grace, New Creation, Provider God, Redemption, Suffering and Trials, Sustainer God



Verse 1
Broken one, take heart
For your king has entered in
Made your heart his home
When he washed away your sin
In the darkest day, know your shame is all gone
When he looks at you, God will see his son
At the throne of grace, he says, “Sinner, come.”

Verse 2
Hurting one, take heart
For your king will walk beside
With each rising sun
Every grace he will provide
In the hardest day, he will never forsake
For he knows your grief, and he feels your pain
When the world gives way, Jesus will remain

Verse 3
Waiting one, take heart
For your king will soon return
Ending every strife
He will reign upon the earth
In the longest day, know the vict’ry is won
Do not fear the world, he has overcome
You are safe in him, covered by his love

  Sample Introduction

Christians are not exempt from troubles. We hurt, we are sad, lonely and fearful. Jesus knows this, but how does he respond? “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” May the words of this song comfort, encourage and equip us to persevere through trials, knowing that our king has overcome the world and that we are safe in his love.
