I know the pain
That life can bring
I see it happen
Again and again

I feel the need
That poverty brings
The emotional drag
The yearn to be free

I’ve felt the gift
Of life in Christ
Removing my pain
Sparing my life

Standing here
I know I’m free
Jesus my Lord
Walks each step with me

Pain has a life
Poverty is a state of mind
Christ heals me
His resources free me

I know the joy
That Christ will bring
I felt His presence
I’ve seen His way

I’ve walked and shared
My struggles with Him
Wisdom and grace
He always gives

My life is important
Because of Christ
The daily grind
Is now a daily prize

Each day is new
Each miracle comes
To enable me to serve
And tell Christ is come
