It’s Time to Praise the Lord
When things seem good, when times are tough
Our God’s the same and He’s enough –
No storm can rise which He can’t still,
No trouble come outside His will.
When weeks are short and seem so bright,
When days are long and turn to night,
The Lord is near – He’s always there –
We can’t escape His loving care.
When great success marks all we touch
Or loss removes our final crutch,
Christ Jesus stands with strength and grace
To help us through the things we face.
So when we laugh and when we cry,
When we’re knocked down or lifted high,
It’s time to praise the One whose love
Will keep us till we’re safe above.
