In a stormy time, when I felt alone

Your face I couldn’t see

I walked through a valley, so dark and deep

But Lord, You were there with me

I struggled and cried, my hands were tied

“Just when would this trial end?”

In the midst of it all, in weakness I called

On Your Name ~ O Jesus my Friend

You lifted me up when my eyes looked down

At the problems I faced each day

You reminded me, Lord – again and again

I ONLY needed to pray

I only needed to lean on You more

To trust in Your faithful word

To know that this valley was just for a time

To know that my prayers were heard

Although I had done the best I could

My faith was truly tried

Sometimes I felt I’d failed the test

But yet ~ deep down inside

Your mercy and grace propelled me on

Upholding me night and day

Your beams of love kept shining through

I only needed to pray


Thank You Jesus!

When the journey of faith just seems to be

A hill that’s hard to climb

And it seems as though I’m barely moving

One step at a time

O Jesus help me to keep my eyes

On You and You alone

O help me Lord to spend more time ~

Waiting before Your throne

I know that You will lift me up

By Your almighty grace

You’re the hope within my longing heart

With You, I’ll win this race


Dear Lord, be my compass

As I journey on

My trust is in You Lord

For You’re never wrong

With You in the picture

I know I’ll succeed

With Your hand to guide me

I know You will lead

In the way I should go

And the path I should take

Please guide all my steps

And each move that I make

Whichever direction

You’d have me to go

Please help me to follow ~

Help me to know

For You are my Captain

And focus of faith

My Alpha and Omega

On You Lord I wait

To run on without You

I’m certain to fail

Like a ship on the sea ~

Without a firm sail

O shine on my path Lord

Each day and each night

Surround me, O Saviour

With heavenly Light

I’m trusting in You ~

My joy and my song

O Lord, be my compass

As I journey on
