I REFUSE TO BE
I Refuse to be Discouraged
I refuse to be discouraged,
To be sad, or to cry;
I refuse to be downhearted, and here's the reason why:
I have a God who's mighty,
Who's sovereign and supreme;
I have a God who loves me, and I am on His team.
He is all wise and powerful
Jesus is His name;
Though everything is changeable,
My God remains the same.
My God knows all that's happening
Beginning to the end
His presence is my comfort
He is my dearest Friend
When sickness comes to weaken me,
To bring my head down low,
I call upon my mighty God
Into His arms I go.
When circumstances threaten to rob me of my peace
He draws me close unto His breast
Where all my strivings cease
When my heart melts within me, and weakness takes control,
He gathers me into His arms
He soothes my heart and soul.
The great "I AM" is with me
My life is in His hands
The "Son of the Lord" is my hope
It's in His strength I stand
I refuse to be defeated
My eyes are on my God
He has promised to be with me, as through this life I trod
I'm looking past all my circumstances,
To Heaven's throne above,
My prayers have reached the heart of God, I'm resting in His love
I give God thanks in everything
My eyes are on His face
The battle's His, the victory mine
He'll help me win the race.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!!!
