I will not be discouraged

To be sad or to cry

I refuse to be downhearted

And here's the reason why

I have a God who's mighty

Who's sovereign and supreme

I have a God who loves me

And I am on his team

He is all wise and powerful

Jesus is his name

Though everything is changeable

My God remains the same

My God knows all things happening

Beginning to the end

His presence is my comfort

He is my dearest friend

When sickness comes to weaken me

To bring my head down low

I call upon my mighty God

Into his arms I go

When circumstances threaten

To rob me of my peace

He draws me close unto his bosom

Where all my strivings cease

And when my heart melts within me

And weakness takes control

He gathers me into his arms

He sooths my heart and soul

The great "I AM" is with me

My life is in his hands

The son of the Lord is my hope

It's in his strength I stand

I refuse to be defeated

My eyes are on my God

He has promised to be with me As through this life I trod

I'm looking past all my circumstances

To Heavens throne above

My prayers have reached the heart of God

I'm resting in his love

I give God thanks in everything

My eyes are on his face

The battle's his, the victory's mine

He will help me win this race
