DEALING WITH THE PAIN

At times you feel you're all alone when troubles keep you down,
When misery loves company, but nobody's around.
When problems get the best of you, and answer's can't be found,
When giving all your best to smile, you manage just to frown.

At times you feel the pain inside is far too much to bear,
When even those you love so much are never ever there.
When you become invisible and no one seems to care,
When realizing finally, that life just isn't fair.

You feel afraid.
You feel left out.
You can't help but ask why?
If your life feels much worse then death,
Then why not simply die?

If every night you go to bed and secretly you cry,
If you can't get away from grief no matter how you try.
You feel such sorrow in your life.
You ask and ask again,
If living is a living hell, why put up with it then?

If you face all these problems that just seem to never end,
Just know no matter whom you are, you'll always have a friend.
Someone who's been through so much more than you will understand,
Someone who sacrificed his life to save his fellow man.

Someone who never lost his faith, someone who never ran,
Someone who always does for us the very most he can.
Someone who died a mockery, who paid the greatest cost,
Someone who died so painfully, nailed up against a cross.

Despite his being king of kings, the boss of every boss,
He died because he thought we were too precious to be lost.
So if you ever feel you can no longer stand the pain,
Just know you have at least one friend who's been through quite the same.
He'll always be around you there to listen, not to blame.

So if you need to talk to someone just call out his name.
And hopefully your problems will no longer seem so great,
Perhaps because you know that he gave himself for your sake.
And maybe even though you hurt you'll manage still to smile,
The fact that Jesus loves you will make everything worthwhile.
