Boundless and Bold


When your deepest disappointment brings a new meaning to your life,
And you’re closer to the ground than you thought you’d ever be,
And the weeks seem long and meaningless and another day brings strife
In the valley of the shadows the soul’s dark night is all you see

The mourning becomes dancing
The loss becomes new gain
Step by step you are  advancing
On the road of toil and pain
In the cauldron of experience
His presence is the power
That perfects the weak-for their defense
Mercy makes a mighty tower

Boundless and Bold is the Father’s love
As it was from old, it is more than enough
We’ll never tame the glorious name
The reckless raging Love  age to age the same

The challenges we face each day exposit our great need
To cast ourselves headlong on grace  for every thought and deed
This transforms our perspective, a so our mind’s renewed
Setting our  hearts on things above will baptize our attitude

The mourning becomes dancing
The loss becomes new gain
Step by step you are  advancing
On the road of toil and pain
In the cauldron of experience
His presence is the power
That perfects the weak-for their defense
Mercy makes a mighty tower

Boundless and Bold is the Father’s love
As it was from old, it is more than enough
We’ll never tame the glorious name
The reckless raging Love  age to age the same
