I Only Needed To Pray


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!
