When that situation gets out of hand
And you've done all you possibly can,
Don't give up and go to despair
But get on your knees and go to prayer.
When funds are low and bills are due
The car needs repair and so do you,
Don't stop and wait for better days
Just get on your feet and begin to praise.
It's not hard to pray when things go wrong
That is, if you've been praying all along.
If you haven't, then start today -
The Lord said you should always pray!
