Groan To Glory


ln a world where challenges and chaos sweeps my day to night,
there will l groan to glory in grace and ache.

In a time where struggles and grudges of life mourns my sorrow to death,
there will l groan to glory in shame and suffering.

In a season where pains and strains of fears cause me to rain down tears,
there will l groan to glory in my tears of agony and shame.

In a period where loneliness and dilemma expands my heart with sorrow,
there will l groan in glory to drink the wine of suffering and eat the meal of shame.

In a moment where shame becomes my meal and sufferings my meat,
there will l groan to glory in my tough moments and hardship.

At the foot of sorrow, there will l groan to glory in my shame and suffering.
At the root of shame, there will l groan to glory in my pains and tears.
At the heel of tears, there will l groan to glory in my loneliness and aloneness.
At the hill of pains, there will l groan to glory in my struggles and grudges.

In the day when life becomes too hot to face,
and my grief seems so tough to bear;
there will l groan to glory in pains and tears,
until my groans becomes my glory and l groan to glory.
