God is within


My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

Why are you so far from saving me,
so far from my cries of anguish?
(Psalm 22:1; NIV).

1. When you sigh
That God has left you,
Don’t lose faith:
He is within.

2. When you think
You’ve been forsaken,
Don’t give up:
He is within.

3. When you fear
You’ve been deserted,
Don’t lose heart:
He is within.

4. When you feel
You’ve been abandoned,
Don’t despair:
He is within.

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me
(Psalm 23:4; KJV).
