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.
