Sometimes itís hard to take
The bitter with the sweet,
To face the raging storms of life
And not give up in defeat.

Sometimes we rely on worldly things
To help us reach our goals.
We build our hopes upon the sand,
And the storms beat on our souls.

But if we put our trust in God
We're building on His rock,
And all the storms of life canít harm
Anyone whoís in His flock.

We will endure the storms of life
With faith and trust in His love,
For He will set His lighthouse
To guide us from above.

Then whatever challenges we face,
Whatever be our plight,
He will guide us safely home
If we only follow in His light.
