by Fred Briggs
When troubles rule my life and age, And worries follow near, No matter how the foe may rage I know that God is here. Though fears may haunt my nights and days, Though weak my soul may be, He holds me in His righteous ways. My Lord, He strengthens me. You are my God, my peace of mind, My joy, my promised aide. You are the hope of all mankind. I will not be dismayed.
