| BE OF GOOD CHEER|
When the storms and trials of life come your way
And you can barely keep the hellhounds at bay
You have no help from your neighbors or friends
Look to Jesus for in your troubles help he sends
Paul almost perished in that great storm on the sea
When the Lord said to him be of good cheer it is me
Paul trusted and had faith in the Lord and his plan
None on the wrecked ship were lost, not even a man
Satan tries to destroy and hinder God's work
Around God's children he does lurk
But prayer to the Lord has much power
Causes the enemy to withdraw and to cower
So I say unto you be of good cheer
Trust in the Lord because he is ever near
He will give you peace and wonderful grace
And strength and endurance to run the race
Hold on to Jesus' loving powerful hand
He will lead you on to the promised land
When the enemy comes in like a flood
Remember you are covered by his blood
