At times it seems we travel on
A road that's much too rough
At times it seems the way too steep
The path too hard and tough
And more than that there's hail and wind
There's sleet and rain and snow
How can we stand against the gail
When tempests start to blow?
Then we must look to Jesus
And read His Word each day
So He can help us understand
Just why it is this way.
Oft' times we need the discipline
God's loving hand imparts
To set us on the path of life
We followed at the start
There's other times He wants to teach
Us patience, love, and care
So, when there's someone else in need
His comfort we can share.
