He Understands

When you find yourself in darkness
hang in there, don’t lose hope.
The Lord is always with you,
even at the end of your rope.

He understands your heart aches
and each and every tear,
don’t be afraid to call on Him
for He is always near.

He’ll gladly take on burdens
you cannot bear alone.
Just take the time to talk to Him
you don’t even have to pick up the phone.

He understands frustrations
and all of the stress of life.
When it seems He has forgotten us
is when He wants to hold us tight.

He’ll never make us fight alone,
He’s always by our side.
So even when you’re down and out
remember, in Him you can confide.
