My Cloud of Witnesses


Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.


Hebrews 12:1


There are days

there are far too many days

when I wish there were no more

life has become hard

days have lost their joy

God's blessings wear like curses


Until I recall my cloud of witnesses

those I've known, those I know

whose joys seem even more transient

from whom blessing seems to have fled

who yet praise our God

despite everything


And seeing these, I too can sing

Amen! Amen! I'm alive! I'm alive!

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow!

And I know, because of Him

And I know, knowing them

not only can I face tomorrow

I can also endure today
