WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS


HAS YOUR LIFE BEEN TROUBLE AND RUGGED,
WITH BURDENS THAT YOU COULD NOT BEAR?
COULD YOU NOT FIND A FRIEND THAT WOULD GUIDE YOU,
WHO COULD HELP YOU YOUR BURDENS TO BEAR?

WHEN A PERSON COULD NOT BE LOCATED
WITH THE ANSWER THAT REALLY HELPED YOU,
DID YOU LOOK FOR SOME OTHER SOLUTION?
ONE THAT HID ALL THE TROUBLE, SO BLUE?

DID YOU TRY TO CLOUD MEMORIES WITH LIQUOR,
OR TO WIPE OUT YOUR MIND WITH SOME DOPE?
ONLY TO FIND OUT TO YOUR SORROW
THAT THEY OFFERED NO ANSWER OR HOPE?

HAVE YOU TRIED HIDING OUT IN THE MOUNTAINS,
HOPING NO ONE WOULD FIND YOU OUT THERE,
ONLY TO COME BACK TO THE CITY,
SINCE THE LOLINESS YOU COULD NOT BEAR?

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS TO SOLVE THE GREAT PROBLEMS,
THERE IS ONE YOU CAN ALWAYS TURN TO.
TURN TO GOD, HE HAS EVERY SOLUTION.
HE JUST WAITS TILL HE HEARS FROM YOU.

IT'S SO SAD, THAT WE TEND TO FORGET HIM,
AND TURN AWAY FROM HIS GREAT LOVE,
WHEN FORGIVENESS AND HELP IS JUST WAITING
TO BE YOURS FROM THE ONE UP ABOVE.

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, TRY GOD, HE'S THE ANSWER
THAT WAS WAITING FOR YOU FROM THE START.
HE'S JUST WAITING FOR YOU TO TURN TO HIM
AND TO GIVE HIM YOUR LIFE AND YOUR HEART.
