It's Hard

It's Hard to be you,
When they want you just like them.
It's hard to be you, 
When they just want to condemn.
It's hard to be faithful,
When they just want you to sin.
It's hard to stay out,
When they want to drag you in.
It's hard to be good,
When all around are bad.
It's hard to be happy,
When all around are sad.
It's hard to be like Jesus,
When all you do is fail.
It's hard to go on through life,
When folk just make it stale.
It's hard to walk the lonely road,
When folk just want to goad.
Make it easy on yourself my friend,
Choose the road that Jesus trod.
Make it easy on yourself my friend,
And choose the Path of God.
