Without God




I could not face the day
Its sunshine or the rain
Without God’s love to lead the way
And bring me home again

I could not face the night
The darkness or its deep
Without God’s peace to whisper, child
I’ll keep thee while you sleep

I could not face this life
Its mountain or its sea
Without God’s grace to fill my want  
And gently comfort me

I could not face death's vale
But when that hour comes
I know that God will walk me through
And kindly lead me home

 “The Lord bless you and keep you; 
 The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you; 
 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”’ Num. 6:24-26
