God never did say we would not know trial;
But He said He would be with us all the while.
In those trying times when God feels far away,
All you need to do is open your heart and pray.
Our Lord is faithful and true;
He is there with us in all we do.
And when we are following Him,
Everything we do reflects Him.
God says He will always be there;
In fact He is as close as a prayer.
If we pray for a minute or an hour,
Turning to him we release His power.
The Most High God, Creator of all,
He hears our lowly pleas when we call.
The one who created heaven and earth,
Created us and gives us our worth.
He has called each of us to be special,
He did not make us to be empty and dull.
When we accept Him He calls us as His own,
We are joint heirs with Christ to the throne.
