Take Courage

Take courage, dear friend, you WILL come through
Though dark the days, God cares for you
Though deep within, you may feel it’s the end
Your heart that is broken, the Saviour can mend

He knows of the depths of your sorrow and pain
He’s there to uplift you, again and again
He knows of the times when you’re feeling blue
Take hold of His hand ~ outstretched for you

Take courage, dear friend, look up to the King,
Through Jesus, our Lord, this battle you’ll win

Just lift your voice and give Him praise
He’ll bring you through ~ you’ll be amazed!

He’ll Be There


Be strong and of good courage.

Don’t let the sights dismay.
He’ll be there in the battle.
He will not let you stray.

If the Lord our God is for us,
then who can be against?
For He’s our Mighty Fortress;
our Shield and our Defence.

No weapon formed shall prosper;
no judging tongue succeed.
In Christ we are forgiven;
our righteousness is He.

Hold fast to His mighty word,
for greater is He in you
than he that is in the world.
The Lord will see you through.


(Joshua 1:9; Isaiah 54:17; Romans 8:31; 1 John 4:4)
