NOTHING TAKES YOU BY SURPRISE

Mark Harris and Tony Wood

It may be a phone call
That comes without warning
And suddenly my heart is breaking
It may be a headline
I wake to one morning
And suddenly my world is shaken
But every now and then
When life falls apart
There’s a truth I trust
That calms my heart

Nothing takes You by surprise
Here beneath these troubled skies
There’s a comfort just to realize
Nothing takes You by surprise

Sometimes the hard times seem
Senseless and random
Like life’s just a series of chances
But come what may you’ve never
Left us abandoned
You’re God over all circumstances
And nothing on earth
Can ever change Your plans
You’re in control
We’re in Your hands

Nothing takes You by surprise
Here beneath these troubled skies
There’s a comfort just to realize
Nothing takes You by surprise

Though bitter winds blow
This truth is sweet
Things out of our hands
Are still under Your feet – and

Nothing takes You by surprise
Here beneath these troubled skies
There’s a comfort just to realize
Nothing takes You by surprise

Whatever crisis may arise
Jesus, You're Lord of our lives
Nothing takes You by surprise
