This life is so fragile But some never learn That God’s always there When for answers you yearn. Life’s trials and tests, Such struggles as these, Oft times find us helpless And brought to our knees. It’s there we belong In frustration and worry, For in this position He’ll come in a hurry. He’ll stretch out His hand Offer comfort and strength, For the size of our problems, The width, breadth and length. Though now we don’t know Exactly His plan, Someday he will tell us So we’ll understand… Why life is confusing Gives no explanations, And often is different Than our expectations. That’s why we must trust Him For He’s always right. Just ask and He’ll grant you His strength for the fight. And when troubles plague you, Just ask Him to send… His strength for the battles, That worries may end. He’s for you and with you, And there for the asking. He’s your Father God And His love’s everlasting.
