If I seem a bit worried and fear settles in;
if regret is my constant reminder,
tell me again of all that is good.
Encourage my thoughts to be kinder.
If somehow I’m losing the hope that’s within
and struggle to keep up the faith;
remind me once more ‘One day at a time’
are the only steps I need to take.
Yes, I do believe the Bible, my friend
and I cling to the old rugged cross;
but there are days I feel weak and alone,
there are nights when I turn and I toss.
The valleys get hard, the answers seem few
and the enemy lurks at the door;
so please pray for me and I’ll pray for you
as together we press on with The Lord.
There’s a day that is coming and not far away
when our burdens at last we’ll lay down;
for in place of the trials, the fear and the pain
Christ will give us a glorious crown.
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
