“I Would Have Despaired” – by David Bolton

I would have despaired
Unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
I would have despaired
Unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living
In the land of the living

So wait for the Lord
Be strong and let your heart take courage
Wait for the Lord
Let your heart take courage in Him
Let your heart take courage in Him
And wait for the Lord

Peace I leave with you
My peace I give unto you
Not as the world gives
Give I unto you
Peace I leave with you
My peace I give unto you
Not as the world gives
Give I unto you
So let not your heart be troubled
Neither let it be afraid

So wait for the Lord
Be strong and let your heart take courage
Wait for the Lord
Let your heart take courage in Him
Let your heart take courage in Him
And wait for the Lord
