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 hand;
    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.
