When disappointment hangs in the air,
When plans and hopes and dreams lie lost along the way.
When success must be replaced with faithful holding on,
When the options and possibilities have all changed.
When we find life taking a turn uphill once more,
When quiet reflection replaces the roar of the crowd,
When we feel frustrated and misunderstood,
And cannot make this lonely road into something more.
You are with us, understanding us, beside us,
An eternal Good Samaritan, a helper in our floundering,
A light for the darkness, and strength for our next step.
And though the road is not easy, you walk it with us,
Our refuge, our purpose, our comfort, our friend,
Our champion, and the one who lifts our heads.
