How Can It Be?

How can it be Lord
That day to day
My bones ache with weariness
My muscles cry out in pain
And I have no energy
Other than to exist for the day?

How can it be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power?

How can it be Lord
That You live in me today
Touching my whole body
With Your love eternally
Yet in sickness I live
Yearning to be free?

How can it be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power?

How can it be Lord
That Your stripes were for my healing
That the punishment You took
Was to give me health and freedom
When I lie here in sickness
And pain is my companion?

How can it be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power?

How can it be Lord
That You died for all my sins
Took sinful me to the grave
And gave me Your life to live
Yet I struggle each day
To find the energy to move?

How can it be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power?

There is no sin I’ve done
That Your blood does not cover
And You have given me
Your righteousness forever
And I’m living in Your glory
Where satan has no power

For I know it to be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power

Let the fulness of Your victory
Be seen in me today
Your power over sickness
Your restoring, healing Grace
Your presence and Your love
My eternal embrace

For I know it to be Lord
That I’m Your beloved bride
Bought by Your blood, Jesus
To sit by Your side
To live in Your kingdom
To live in Your power
