There are times I think that in my life I’ve done more harm than good.
When I regret not having done those things I know I should.
There are times it seems as if a mountain blocks my way
And though I’ve heard it comes to pass, the sorrow tries to stay.
There are times I feel the way is harder than my heart can bear
Times I reach out and feel that there is nothing, no one, there
There are times I seek to pray but cannot say a word
Times I admit I wonder if a single prayer was heard
Then there are times that joy abiding comes to fill my heart
Times I understand that I play a special, unique part
In a rhyme that runs so deep it was formed before time started
In a love so vast that from it none could e’er be parted
In a reason for this life that calls unto my very soul
In a purpose helping others find that which makes them whole
There is a meaning that goes beyond life’s passing, changing tide
Given by the One who in my heart always will abide
