Through This Night

1: There is an arm that holds me tight
When I am all alone
Someone is with me by my side
I am not on my own
Our God is never far away
He will hear me when I pray
And I will get through this night

2: There is a voice that calms my soul
When I am torn apart
The voice that called the world to life
Speaks life into my heart
He says, ‘the darkness won’t last long
Cling to me and you’ll be strong
And we will get through this night

Chorus: Our Father watches from above
And every thought’s a thought of love
He will not leave
We needn’t be afraid
In sorrow, danger he is near
He catches every falling tear
Counts them all
And dries our crying eyes.

3: There on the other side of dawn
Another world awaits
A better world, our bodies new
Where we will always stay
With no beginning and no end
God is there, our Father, friend
So we will get through this night
