"BEND IN THE ROAD"
When you feel you have nothing left to give,
And you're sure that the song has ended,
And it seems there's no reason left to life
And the darkness of night had descended.
Where can you go to find the strength
You need to keep on tryin'?
Where can you find the hand that'll dry
The tears your heart is cryin'?-
When you're filled with hopelessness and sorrow,
--Looking at what seems to be the end,
God will whisper, "Wait until to morrow,-
This heartbreak is only a bend in the road."
[Bend in the road], bend in the road,
[Bend in the road], bend in the road.-
The road will continue past the bend,
And you'll sing as you go on your journey,
And hope in your heart will burn again
As you see the light for which you're yearning.
Be comforted to know the Lord is with you,-
He's closer than any other friend.
He whispers to your heart to reassure you-
That happiness is just around the bend in the road.
[Bend in the road], bend in the road
