Oh God

September 22, 2010

Oh God, how many times have you heard this prayer?
Pleading for comfort in the midst of despair

Whenever all traces of hope seem to be gone
Please God, give me the strength to trudge on

Give me some patience from your reserve
And a little wisdom, and maybe some courage

Give me a shoulder to catch my tears
Give me the peace to quell my fears

Sometimes I feel so helpless and small
Like my life doesn’t make any difference at all

Please God, whenever I’m feeling this way
Just help me make it through the day

by Della Smith (c) 1976
