Looking To You, LORD

Looking To You, LORD

When my soul is downcast within me
and I don't know what to do
I reach out for a bit of Heavenly help
that always sees me through.
I know not from whence the wind doth blow
but I know one thing for sure
That You never fail to answer me
and my heart reassure.

I don't know that these times are so different
than what has gone on before
It just seems like life can be so difficult
and my options I must explore.
You have taught me about these thoughts of mine
and how they bring about
Conditions on which I focus upon...
do occur, there is no doubt.

I will just think loving thoughts of You
and let You be my guide
For these matters that perplex me so
I will just take in stride.
Knowing that You are in control
and what will be, will be
I'll place my trust in Thee, Dear Lord
for You hold the key.

"My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD;
in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee,
and will look up." Psalm 5:3
