    1. Sometimes when I’m feeling scared,

    I kneel down and say a prayer

    and ask Him to help me through the day.

    Sometimes when I’m feeling sad

    for hard times that I have had,

    I ask Him to help me find my way.

    2. Sometimes when I’m all alone

    and long for my heav’nly home,

    I ask Him to help me feel at peace.

    Sometimes when I’m feeling pain

    or standing in pouring rain,

    I ask Him to help me feel relief.

    3. Sometimes when I just don’t know

    the path I should choose to go,

    I ask Him to help me make a choice.

    I know He is always there

    to guide me through simple prayer

    And help me to hear His loving voice.

    Chorus

    Then a message will come from my Father up above

    in a song or a dream or in beauty that surrounds me.

    If I try to obey and remember to pray

    I’ll see the tender mercies of the Lord.
