"WHEN YOU NEED HIM MOST"

Say not that God His face has hidden from you,
Though doubts may stand before you as a host.
Lift up your eyes; behold, Christ watches o'er you;
And He is nearest when you need Him most.

Chorus
Fear not the testing; 'tis to make you stronger,
That not in self, but Christ, your soul shall boast.
He will not leave you rest now on His promise,
For He is nearest when you need Him most.

[Two times]

Why should you wonder at His tender mercy?
He too has walked the rugged, wind-swept coast.
He knows your weakness and your fierce temptations,
And waits to aid you when you need Him most.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Two times]

So do not fear the gath'ring clouds of darkness;
Stand where God placed you, never leave your post!
And when it seems that sure defeat awaits you,
He'll stand beside you when you need Him most.

[Repeat Chorus Twice]

-For He is nearest when you need Him most.
