Because You Say So


          At times I feel I wonít make it through,
          No matter how hard I try.
          But I must continue to trust in You,
          For my needs You will supply.

          Why? Because You say so!

          When life deals me a tragic blow,
          And I think I canít face the trials.
          I know that You will give me strength,
          To walk the long rough miles.

          Why? Because You say so!

          When someone I love so dearly,
          Hurts me deeply and wounds my heart.
          I think, Oh God, can I accept this?
          Yes, Youíll help me make a new start.

          Why? Because You say so!

          When others with whom I have to deal,
          Look down on me with distaste.
          Iíll continue to love them as myself,
          And through me theyíll see Your grace.

          Why? Because You say so!

          When I find it hard to forgive others,
          Who have treated me so unkind.
          I know You wonít offer forgiveness to me,
          Until I forgive and put all hurt behind.

          Why? Because You say so!

          Throughout Your book it is written,
          That I should only look above.
          Then I can overcome any obstacle,
          For You love me with an unfailing love.

          Why? Because You say so!
