When the tears fall like raindrops

And when the heavy heart does cry,

Your gentle touch will envelop us

So our sadness will subside.

You are there in troubled waters

And in moments of despair;

You will wrap Your kindness around our soul

To show You really care.

You are there in pleasant times

And although we may forget,

It’s Your grace that will protect us

As our steady safety net.

You are always there regardless

And from Your presence we can’t hide,

You’re our fairest and our best friend

When in You we do confide.

You’re our shield and rear guard

And under Your wings we take refuge;

You cover us with Your feathers;

Our humble prayers You won’t refuse.

Lord, You will always be there

With open arms that extend,

To comfort and to console us

To rescue us and to defend.

There’s no reason we should worry

Knowing that You’ll take good care,

Of our heart and soul forevermore

When we trust You’re always there.
