You Was There

Thank you Lord when
I couldn’t talk
You was there
Thank you Lord when
I couldn’t walk
You was there
Thank you Lord when
I couldn’t move,
you was there to help me through.
Thank you Lord when
I didn’t have any food
You was there
Thank you Lord when
I didn’t have a roof
You was there
Thank you Lord when
I lose my job
You was there and
you provided for us all
You saw us through
you was there
When mother couldn’t help me anymore
You was there
When daddy was gone up to glory
And I just want to thank you Lord
Because you was there
to see me through the tough times
in my life
you was there
when I lose my 19 year old daughter
you was there
when the years of hard ache
and pain knocks me to my
knees. Thank you Lord for you
was there to see me through
If you still wondering why I love Him
so because no one can
comfort you when you going
through trouble like the comforter
that was sent to us by the Son, the Father,
His spirit the
precious Holy Ghost.
