Bible Reference… 2Corinthians 3:5; 12:9; Philippians 4:13,19
Weary, downtrodden believer, I know the Burden-Reliever;
He is the sinless Redeemer. He’s my best Friend.
I met Him on bended knee; He met me on Calvary.
Underneath an old rugged tree; that’s where I fell. Now…
He dries every tear I cry. He answers when I ask, “Why?”
He’s every single little thing I need.
He is faithful down to the end. He’s closer than a brother’s been.
When I thunk about all He is, that’s all I need.
Christian, don’t give up tryin’; mountains were made for climbin’.
The One who walks beside me will stand by you.
I’ve never known Him to fail; He’s conquered both death and Hell.
So, do not doubt He will prevail. I’ve seen what He can do. (CHORUS 3x)
