TROUBLED TIMES 

Lord I know the way can be rough 
And sometimes I wonder is my faith strong enough 
Temptation's waiting around every bend 
Lord won't you reach out and lend me a hand 

Show me a light in the darkness 
And I'll follow wherever it shines 
'Cos I need you beside me 
In these troubled times 

Seems I always get caught in two minds 
I got one foot forward, one dragging behind 
One eye on salvation, one eye on the door 
And I've come unstuck at this crossroads before 

And I'm tired of running from shadows 
Tired of hustling for nickels and dimes 
Lord I need you beside me 
In these troubled times 

I've drifted away from the light 
I fled into the darkness like a thief in the night 
Like a shadow that runs from the breaking of day 
My courage deserted me, melted away 

And I'm tired of running from shadows 

Tired of hustling for nickels and dimes 

Lord I need you beside me 

In these troubled times

So show me a light in my darkness 

And I'll follow wherever it shines 

'Cos I need you beside me 

In these troubled times 

Yes I need you beside me 

In these troubled times
