I refuse to be discouraged, to be sad, or to cry;
I refuse to be down-hearted, and heres the reason why:
I have a God whos mightywhos sovereign and supreme;
I have a God who loves me, and I am on His team.
He is all-wise and powerfulJehovah is His name;
Though everything is changeable, my God remains the same.
My God knows all thats happeningbeginning to the end;
His presence is my comfort; He is my dearest Friend.
When sickness comes to weaken meto 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 breast where all my strivings cease.
When my heart melts within me, and weakness takes control,
He gathers me into His armsHe soothes my heart and soul.
The great “I AM” is with memy life is in His hand;
The “God of Jacob” is my hope; its in His strength I stand.
I refuse to be defeatedmy eyes are on my God;
He has promised to be with me as through this life I trod.
Im looking past all circumstance to Heavens throne above;
My prayers have reached the heart of GodIm resting in His love.
I give God thanks in everythingmy eyes are on His face;
The battles His, the victry mine; Hell help me win the race.
