"Faith and Purpose"

However dark the day may seem

or steep the path I trod

I have no fear because I know

I have my faith in God.

I know He will not leave me or

forget me in my need

as long as I believe in Him

with every thought and deed.

I may be foolish now and then

and I may lose my way

but he is always at my side

where ever I may stray.

His guiding grace reminds me of

the mercy He has shown

and in my deepest misery

I never feel alone.

I know my God is willing to

forgive my every sin

as long as I have faith and I

sincerely try to win.
