“Tender Mercies of the Lord,” New Era, Mar. 2009, 6–7In TuneTender Mercies of the LordWords by Julia D. OlsonMusic by Kevin R. Olson1. Sometimes when I’m feeling scared,I kneel down and say a prayerand ask Him to help me through the day.Sometimes when I’m feeling sadfor hard times that I have had,I ask Him to help me find my way.2. Sometimes when I’m all aloneand long for my heav’nly home,I ask Him to help me feel at peace.Sometimes when I’m feeling painor standing in pouring rain,I ask Him to help me feel relief.3. Sometimes when I just don’t knowthe path I should choose to go,I ask Him to help me make a choice.I know He is always thereto guide me through simple prayerAnd help me to hear His loving voice.ChorusThen a message will come from my Father up abovein a song or a dream or in beauty that surrounds me.If I try to obey and remember to prayI’ll see the tender mercies of the Lord.© 2009 by Kevin R.
