The Presence of God
When I am in the depths of despair,
when I feel hopeless and alone,
when I’m abandoned by all,
I feel you by my side.
When it is anguish I feel,
And anger is my companion, denial my veil,
I feel you holding on my hand,
When it is dark where I sit and light seems too far out of reach,
I feel you are guiding me,
When my belief is tested, when I feel unsure of the end, I feel you are by me,
When I see no way out, I find you beside me,
Good God, please keep on guiding me.
