Stuart Townend – Courage Lyrics

By Azlyrics

[Verse 1]
Worry seems to know my every move
With every new imagining, he whispers in my ear
Even when I’ve nothing left to prove
He’s painting possibilities of failure and despair
So God, I’ll stand with open hands
And heart just fixed on following
I’ll keep my eyes on this day’s prize
Of finding You in everything

[Chorus]
Courage to take one step at a time
Today is my gift, not tomorrow
Courage to walk with Christ in my sight
The path strewn with laughter and sorrow

[Verse 2]
Wonder if I’m ever really here
Retreating to the fantasies of what my life could be
Captive to the highwayman of fear
He’s robbing me of everything that’s right in front of me
I’ll learn to see what’s given to me
And cherish every part of it
My all I’ll give to those I’m with
And act with grace and honesty

[Chorus]
Courage to take one step at a time
Today is my gift, not tomorrow
Courage to walk with Christ in my sight
The path strewn with laughter and sorrow

[Interlude]

[Verse 3]
Let me hear the child that cries within
The wounds that weep with bitterness of innocence betrayed
Help me own the hurt behind the sin
Let healing and forgiveness flow like cool refreshing rain
So with each day, I’ll choose to say
The past won’t have a hold on me
Through loss and pain, my hope remains
The power of Christ at work in me

[Chorus]
Courage to take one step at a time
Today is my gift, not tomorrow
Courage to walk with Christ in my sight
The path strewn with laughter and sorrow, yeah
Courage to take one step at a time
Today is my gift, not tomorrow
Courage to walk with Christ in my sight
The path strewn with laughter and sorrow

[Instrumental]

[Outro]
Laughter and sorrow
