When times are hard; days seem weary; I am there
I am waiting; when you bow your head in Prayer.
I told you when you are too tired, or scared to cry
I am there my son; my daughter; it is I, who stands by.
I was there when you were born; your family loved you so.
I will be there when you die; to Heaven; I'd have you go.
Look up to the sky; I am farther away; but in your heart
Though sometimes you leave me out for a bit; I shall not part.
I am there when you fall; I lift you up and take you back again.
I hold you closely to my heart, and make you clean from sin
Temptation comes to you; I know at times you cannot refrain.
When you fall again; your life feels cold; as the winter rain.
I'm there when you or a loved one is ill; when a babe is born.
I'll be there when you leave this world; I will help the babe to mourn.
I'm there with you when the rains fall; or snow is upon the ground...
When you go through trials and tribulations; I can be found.
