The Times That Tested My Soul

Lord, I was just thinking today
 about my life and how things
 have changed...... and how many
 times its been shattered and
 rearranged.

 Those were the times I clung
 too tightly to those I loved so
 and I had to learn the hard way
 sometimes I have to let go.

 Those were the times that tested
 my soul, and the faith I have in you.
 If not for you, I know my world would
 have shattered, and I wouldn't have
 made it through.

 Lord, when I was weak you loaned
 me your strength; when I thought
 I could not make it another day
 You took me by the hand and pointed
 out the way.

 When I lost those closest to my heart
 and life felt so empty, and I felt so alone
 You never failed to remind me that
 those I clung too were only mine on loan.

 And I came to understand it's because
 you are a good Father that, from time to
 time, you send your angel to collect
 your loan and take another loved
 one home.

 Those were the times that tested
 my soul, and the faith I have in you.
 If not for you, I know my world would
 have shattered, and I wouldn't have
 made it through.
