(based on Psalm 107:1)
Whenever I’m lonely and need a true friend
He fills that need time and again.
Whenever I’m scared of what lies ahead
His calm assurance keeps me from dread.
Whenever I’m lost and can’t find my way,
I have His promise that beside me he’ll stay.
Whenever I’m weary and just want to sleep,
He gives me strength to carry down deep.
Whenever I’m angry and just want to shout
His love fills my heart and starts flowing out.
He gives me compassion if I should but ask
And loves me through each difficult task.
For all my mistakes and wrong things I do,
Jesus’ blood cleans me and makes me all new.
He shows me mercy I don’t deserve,
And gives me His grace as I live here on earth.
He holds my future in the palm of His hand,
And reassures me that beside me He’ll stand.
Whenever I’m tired and cannot go on
He strengthens my desire to go on.
He carries my burdens, calms all my fears,
Loves me completely, dries all my tears.
Puts joy in my soul and leaves my side never
For I carry the knowledge that His love endures forever.
