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 oceans 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.”
“You will live your life forever.
Death will not come to your door.
You will have a life of meaning,
Have all Heaven to explore.
All the fears that gather round you
Will be gone within a day.
Listen carefully to My words, son,
And I’ll teach you how to pray.”
Oh, my Savior, be my glory.
Fill my heart to overflow
With Your kindness and Your mercy,
So Your goodness might show.
