I Will Not Give Up

by Joye Atkinson
(Gallatin TN USA)

Sometimes it's all I can do to take another step
Then God reminds me gently of the promises He's kept
At times I want to say I quit I've had all I can take
It's hard to live by my own words
I feel like such a fake
I've tried so hard to be a light so that the Lord above
Could use me as a vessel to emulate his love
Giving up is not an option I've trusted God too long
Even though my path is rough he keeps me safe & strong
I know God is on my side the victory has been won
By the power of the blood of Jesus Christ his son
Lord don't let me loose my faith help me to live each day; contented in your love and peace as you gently lead the way.
