I talk to my Lord God and inquire,
I trust you are with me this day
And for blessings coming my way.
Many a day has come and gone
Love for you continues to grow strong,
Some days I wonder where it all went
Looking back as to how it was spent.
No matter how painful the circumstance
You will be there to help me stand.
Taking me by Your hand to encourage
In You, triumphant I will emerge..
Many a life's struggle I must climb
Like a high mountain so sublime.
Never a problem I can't overcome
Giving me strength You cannot shun.
It's not mine to question why nor how
As I believe You direct by Your power,
But to accept the challenge of the day
Knowing You guide me along my way.
I don't look at failures as setbacks,
But as touchstones designed in my tracks.
Just knowing You are by my side
Gives me the courage I need to abide..
I know You always hear my prayer
Even if I don't realize You've answered,
But you always show me the way
Guiding me through trials each day.
So, I'll just keep on trusting in you,
As I know you will see me through.
Only in You I know I can overcome
Your mighty hand to guide me home..
