I want to say with complete confidence
that I trust in the Lord for everything.
I want to feel that comfort and peace
total reliance on Him can bring.
I want to take faith the size of a mustard seed
and make it grow into a mountain,
where my trust is evident and infinite,
overflowing from an eternal fountain.
I want faith that refuses to recognize
the boundaries of time and space,
A faith that is simply so strong
nothing could ever take its place,
A faith that no trials or troubles
will ever be able to erase.
I desire that my faith should stand alone
when Satan puts me to the test,
A time when putting my trust in the Lord
will be what I do best,
Faith as far as the north is from the south,
as the east is from the west.
Just when will I have enough?
How far can my faith extend?
It’s only when my trust in Him
will seemingly have no end.
