You with the eyes who so sadly shine

Don't despair! Everything will be fine.

He's with you, don't you remember His word?

He's the Shepherd who leads his herd.

The world is evil. It wants to break you down

it places obstacles it's hard to get around.

But you have to climb, maybe you will fall

but be sure, God helps you through it all.

No, you will never know what's ahead

but try to remember what Isaiah said;

"I will trust and not be afraid"

God will one day reward those who stayed.

So I'll stop wishing, and start believing for a while

and I'll stop worrying, even if it's not my style

I'll say, "God only wants my best."

And after a long day I'll finally go to rest.
