Life can be tough at times
Depression and discouragement
Can set in. The cares of this world
And negative thoughts, can overwhelm
You with heaviness, you have a choice to
Think positive thoughts.
David in the Bible encounters difficulties too,
I’m afraid no exemption for me and you.
When depression, and discouragement, takes
A hold. Say like David: Why are you cast
Down oh my soul?
Snap out of it; shake off that spirit that comes
To kill, steal, and destroy? Endeavour to put your
Trust fully in the Lord. When you praise him he’ll
Give you the strength to overcome. Every trials you
May face, and every victory won.
