In a Desert Place

When I’m in a desert place

Where fears and doubts abound,

I look up to Jesus for I know

He’s already looking down.

When I’m in a desert place

And feel overwhelmed by despair,

I can hear Jesus whisper to me,

“My child,” I’m always near.

“I will never leave nor forsake you

Though from me you often stray.

Just take my hand and hold it

And I will lead the way.”

When I’m in a desert place

Lord, help me to see

That there are others hurting

Even more than me.

So let me thank you, Father

For this trial I’m going through,

Because this desert place

Has brought me back to you.
