A Friend When You Need
It's so easy to get
To be downcast or in despair.
When you feel all alone
in your wilderness,
And it seems that no one cares.
temptation hits the hardest,
Where the battle is nearly lost - or
When you stumble through dark valleys
And gloomy shadows hide
In your loneliness and your struggles,
solution that may seem odd -
Don't look around to man for
Instead, with hope, look up to God.
Jesus will provide
the grace you require
And His Word will light the way.
All you need
is faith to claim His promises,
And your night will turn to
The Lord knows your each and every need -
He knows, before
you even ask in prayer.
Just keep on being faithful to Him,
time, His answer will be there.
So instead of giving up in
Do the work that must be done;
You will find that as you
run the race,
God will bring a friend when you most need
