  • Oh, my soul
    Oh, how you worry
    Oh, how you're weary, from fearing you lost control
    This was the one thing, you didn't see coming
    And no one would blame you, though
    If you cried in private
    If you tried to hide it away, so no one knows
    No one will see, if you stop believing

    Oh, my soul
    You are not alone
    There's a place where fear has to face the God you know
    One more day, He will make a way
    Let Him show you how, you can lay this down
    'Cause you're not alone

    Here and now
    You can be honest
    I won't try to promise that someday it all works out
    'Cause this is the valley
    And even now, He is breathing on your dry bones
    And there will be dancing
    There will be beauty where beauty was ash and stone
    This much I know

    Oh, my soul
    You are not alone
    There's a place where fear has to face the God you know
    One more day, He will make a way
    Let Him show you how, you can lay this down

    I'm not strong enough, I can't take anymore
    (You can lay it down, you can lay it down)
    And my shipwrecked faith will never get me to shore
    (You can lay it down, you can lay it down)
    Can He find me here
    Can He keep me from going under

    Oh, my soul
    You're not alone
    There's a place where fear has to face the God you know
    One more day, He will make a way
    Let Him show you how, you can lay this down
    'Cause you're not alone
    Oh, my soul, you're not alone Writer/s: BERNIE HERMS, JOHN MARK HALL
