We know that our lives are short at best
As we travel this earthly sod;
We know that there’s no better way to go through life
Than to simply trust in God.
But, there are times when our faith is weak
And our strength is well nigh gone;
We’re filled with doubts and wonder why
So many things have gone wrong.
It’s in those times of doubt and pain
That we’re tempted to lose heart,
Forgetting that the promises of God
Are faithful from the very start.
His Word is true and never fails;
His Promises—so firm and true.
We simply must believe by faith
That He’ll always see us through.
In times of doubt we must believe
That our Lord will always be there—
To walk with us along the road
And to carry our burdens and cares.
When fear comes knocking at our door
And tries to make us hide,
We must run into Christ’s loving arms
To feel His peace inside.
Although we may not understand why
Our problems are so many and so cruel,
We simply must trust in the God who hears
And make sure that faith shall rule.
Grab fear and doubt by the throats when they come
And throw them out the door—
Declaring that they have no place
And you’ll not listen to them anymore.
How wonderful is the walk of faith
When It in us does dwell;
We then can stand and say with confidence,
“It is well…it is well…it is well.”
