TROUBLED TIMES 

Lord I know the way can be rough 
And I'm not so sure that my faith's 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 
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 
Hustling for nickels and dimes 
I need you beside me 
In these troubled times 

I've drifted away from the light 
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 
Hustling for nickels and dimes 
I need you beside me 
In these troubled times
