Devotional Poem
God is There
In the deepest, darkest pit – God is there.
In the dungeon, where I sit – God is there.
He has promised He will never leave my side.
So, in His unchanging grace I will abide.
And I will trust that through it all – my God is there.
I know that He will hear my call – for God is there.
So I will praise His wondrous love, and holy name.
For God, who was with Joseph, is my God…the same!
