When…

When sadness wells within the soul
Turn, turn, turn to the Lord.
Grab, grab, grab to His Word
Pray, pray, pray for His help
When sadness wells within the soul.

When problems and trials come your way
Ask, ask, ask for His aid
Trust, trust, trust don’t forsake
Stand, stand, stand still and wait
When problems and trials come your way.

When the agony of heart prevails
Run, run, run to the One
Who alone can satisfy your need
Hold, hold, hold tight ’til it’s past
When the agony of heart prevails.

What Happens When…

What happens when
The hard times come and go?
Do we turn to the Lord?
Do we even want to know?
Do we remember and
Do we seek to grow?

Does the pain o’ercome us
In such a way
That we seek the Lord
And make Him our stay?
Or does our attitude
Become bleak and gray?

Do we spend some time
Each day in His Word?
Do we seek to pray
And His armour do we gird
On so that our hearts
Will use the Sword, God’s Word?

Do we remember that we
Should learn to trust
The Lord and wait on Him?
This is truly a must
Because in His time
He, Who is truly just,

Will help those who trust Him through
The times of deep pain.
His children who love Him
In the midst of the rain
Of adversity and our hearts
For His will He does train.
