BAILING OUT MY
By Dean Beaty 3/6/05
Just where do I
go when I’m overcome with care?
Do I bail out my
boat, as my burdens I bare?
Do I look to
myself for the strength for the day?
Or trust in the
Lord, who directeth my way?
Too often I’ve
delayed to take it to the Lord.
myself, my labors I out poured.
And then the Lord
in love, brings me to an impasse.
No further can I
go and turn to Him at last.
I could have
saved myself all the toiling and care,
If I had gone to
Him and sought His help in prayer.
He was there all the time. He was at my right hand.
If I’d only asked
Him, He would help me to stand.
Oh I thank Thee
dear Lord, for your love and your care.
You have promised
your own, that you’d always be there.
May I turn first
to Thee, when testing comes my way.
Letting you still
my storm, turning night into day.
