When life seems hard, impossible to bear

This thought sustains:

I know my Savior’s there.

Some days it seems each little task goes wrong,

I’m helpless then, but know my Savior’s strong.

My pain and suff’ring may sometimes overwhelm

But then I’m comforted: this is my Father’s realm.

Good friends oftimes don’t seem to understand,

But God is there, he holds me with His hand.

In times when others soar, but I crawl all alone

He lifts me up—I know He’s on the throne.

Lord help me trust, my burdens lay to rest.

And lean on Thee;

Thou sendest what is best.
