Everywhere you go
Your troubles follow you
Never letting up
This day is a mess

You cannot escape
There is no refuge here
Troubles come
And they never let go

Just when you think
You’ve got this problem fixed
Another problem comes
Worse than what you fixed

Why are things this way?
I wish I had a say
You do in Christ
He will heal your life

Jesus brings us peace
We know He cares
And His presence gives relief
From the burdens we bear

All the needs I have
Christ will give me strength
I can trust in Him
His life gives me release

No longer alone
I’m living at home
The Lord’s way
Makes me new each day.
