“Out of the wreck, I rise”

When the oceans rise
When the thunders roar
When the lightening strikes
When the rain pours down
When the storm rages
When the road seems gone
Out of the wreck, I rise.

Though mountains emerge
Though valleys stretch on
Though all friends and foe
Start to seem as one
Though hope glimmers dim
As something too far off
Out of the wreck, I rise.

When nothing goes as planned
When there's nowhere I belong
When uncharted waters
Becomes the tune of my song
When my heart is troubled
When my soul scuffles
Out of the wreck, I rise.

For "when the oceans rise and thunders roar.
I will soar with You above the storm
Father You are King over the flood
I will be still, know  You are God"
(Reuben, 2003).

Out of the wreck, I rise every time
For faith makes a fool of what is to make sense
Out of the wreck, I rise every time
For when it comes to You, Logic makes no sense.

Romans 8:31-39
"What then shall we say to these things? 
If God is for us, who can be against us?
He who did not spare His own Son but delivered Him up for us all
How shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies.
Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died
And furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God
Who also makes intercession for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall tribulation or distress, or persecution
Or famine, or nakedness or sword?
As it is written "For Your sake we are killed all day long
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter"
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors
Through Christ who loved us.

For I am persuaded that neither 
death nor life
angels nor principalities nor powers
things in the present nor things to come
height nor depth
nor any other created thing
Shall be able to separate us from the love of God
Which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
