God, Help Us When We’re Frightened

Lyrics as Poetry

God, help us when we’re frightened
and feel ourselves alone,
lead us to you who gives us
good bread and not cold stone.By faith we see when darkness
hides meaning from our eyes.
By faith we walk with courage
when strength within us dies.With hope we face tomorrow
and look beyond this day.
With hope we journey onward
when we can’t see our way.In love we’re bound together
and freed from crippling fear.
The love that was in Jesus
shows us that you are near.God, help us when we’re frightened
and feel ourselves alone,
lead us to you who gives us
good bread and not cold stone.
