Intro:  C Bm7 Asus7 A7
        C Bm7 Asus7 Dsus2(4)                        

  G               Am7
I look to thee in every need,

    G/B           C
And never look in vain;

  Am7                 G/B
I feel thy strong and tender love,

    C           GM7            
And all is well again;

    C                  D/C           
The thought of thee is mightier far

     C                D/C
Than sin and pain and sorrow are;

     C       G/B      Am7    D9sus  G       (rpt. intro)    
Than sin and pain and sorrow are,   my Lord.



Discouraged in the work of life,
Disheartened by its load.
Shamed by its failures or its fears,
I sink beside the road;
But let me only think of thee
And then new heart springs up in me;
And then new heart springs up in me, my Lord.



            C        G/B      Am7
There is an eye that never sleeps 

            D           G
Beneath the wing of night;

            C        G/B       Am7
There is an ear that never shuts 

              D            G
When sink the beams of light.

            C                D/C
There is an arm that never tires 

     Bm7                    Esus4  E
When human strength gives way;

           Am7               G/B
There is a love that never fails 

     C               D9sus
When earthly loves decay.

              C            G/B       Am7
But there's a power which man can wield 

            D         G
When mortal aid is vain,

     C          G/B       Am7
That eye, that arm, that love to reach, 

      D                G
That listening ear to gain.

      C                     D/C
That power is prayer which soars on high

         Bm7              Esus4   E
Through Jesus to the throne;

    Am7                  G/B
And moves the hand which moves the world,

   C               Dm7                    
To bring salvation down;

             G
To bring salvation down.


[solo as verse, repeat chorus]

  G               Am7         GM7
I look to thee in every need.
