    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 of my peace;
    He draws me close unto His breast, where all my strivings cease.

    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 mine; He'll help me win the race.
    I can do all Things through Christ who strengthens me!!!!!!
