Sometimes I get discouraged

And a tear comes to my eyes

Sometimes life doesn’t seem fair,

And I can’t understand why.


Sometimes I want to give up,

When things aren’t going right.

Sometimes it seems like a waste of time;

Not really worth the fight


Those times are when I turn to Jesus

He listens to my prayers

And suddenly the way is easier,

The problems not so hard to bear.


He is a comfort when the way is rough

Through His words I find relief.

I’m reminded that He’s ever near.

On His name I have believed.


He doesn’t promise earthly treasures,

If we follow in His way,

He does promise to fulfil our needs

Each and every day


So let me walk a little closer, Lord.

I know You love me so.

When problems are overwhelming.

I have a friend who knows.
