    I REFUSE

    I refuse to be discouraged
    To be sad, or to cry;
    I refuse to be downhearted
    And here's the reason why.

    I have a God who's mighty
    Who's sovereign and supreme;
    I have a God who loves me
    And I am on His team.

    He is all wise and powerful
    Jesus is His name;
    Though everything is changeable
    My God remains the same.

    My God knows all that's happening
    Beginning to the end,
    His presence is my comfort
    He is my dearest friend.

    When sickness comes to weaken me
    To bring my head down low,
    I call upon my mighty God
    Into His arms I go.

    When circumstances threaten
    To rob me from my peace;
    He draws me close unto His breast,
    Where all my striving's cease.

    And when my heart melts within me
    And weakness takes control;
    He gathers me into His arms
    He soothes my heart and soul.

    The great 'I AM' is with me
    My life is in His hand,
    The 'Son of the Lord' is my hope
    It's in His strength I stand.

    I refuse to be defeated
    My eyes are on my God;
    He has promised to be with me
    As through this life I trod.

    I'm looking past all my circumstances
    To Heaven's throne above;
    My prayers have reached the heart of God,
    I'm resting in His love.

    I give God thanks in everything
    My eyes are on His face;
    The battle's His, the victory is mine;
    He'll help me win the race.
