Father I have great need
Every single day
Sometimes I don’t even know
Until trouble comes my way

Hidden in the folds of life
Need is always here
Give me strength to serve you
I hold Your presence dear

Come and show me pathways
That protect and provide
Lord I need your presence
As I face this day’s surprise

I know You are loving
I trust You are here
Life and life’s illusions
Are not friends of mine

Thank you for your guidance
And all the gifts you give
Life is worth the struggle
As long as You are near
