Someone feels my pain and grief
Someone comforts as no one else
When others fail, on Him I lean
Jesus is always there

Someone lifts me with His strength
And through the darkness carries me;
Spiritual healing and peace He sends
Jesus is always there

Someone loves me all the time
All I desire is found in Him
Ever faithful and merciful
Jesus is always there

“The Eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the Everlasting Arms.” ~Deuteronomy 33:27


It Was Christ

When no one else could understand
The problems that I had
It was Christ… that drew near

When no one else could even help
Untangle all the knots
It was Christ… that stepped in

When no one else had the solution
And all had turned their backs
It was Christ… that took charge

When no one else could keep on trying
And all hope ran dry
It was Christ… who intervened

“I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” ~Hebrews 13:5


Dark Valleys

As we travel through dark valleys
So weary, tired and longing
Needing so a place of rest
Jesus, Savior, help us trust!

The darkest hours fill our soul
Needs within no one can know
Pain upon pain, tears ceaseless flow
In Thy light we long to be!

So pressed and crushed beneath the load
Faint to carry on much more
Needing hope along the way
Jesus, lift us up today!
