Oh, Sweet Jesus when I’m weary,
Much too tired to start the day,
Light a candle in the darkness
So that I can find my way.
Be my rock in times of trouble.
Hold me up when the rivers rise.
Do not let me drown, Dear Savior.
Hear my fading, fearful cries.
Keep me safe from all temptation,
Focused on the goal ahead.
Never let me get distracted,
Or forget the words You’ve said.
“Your name is written on My hands, son.
You will not be left behind.
I will carry you to heaven.
You will not be hard to find.”
