Life is Hard...but God is Good
by Pam Thum

You turn the key, then close the door behind you
Drop your bags on the floor
You reach for the light but there's darkness deep inside
and you can't take it anymore.
'Cause sometimes living takes the life out of you
and sometimes living is all you can do.

Life is hard, the world is cold
We're barely young and then we're old
But every falling tear is always understood
Yes, life is hard, but God is good.

You start to cry 'cause you've been strong too long
And that's not how you feel.
You try to pray but there's nothing left to say
So you just quietly kneel
In the silence of all that you face
God will give you His mercy and grace.
Jesus never said it was an easy road to travel
He only said that you would never be alone
So when your last thread of hope begins to come unraveled
Don't give up, He walked beside you on this journey Home
and He knows

Life is hard, the world is cold
We're barely young and then we're old
But every falling tear is always understood
Yes, life is hard, but God is good.
