Jesus Is Where It All Begins

For all the trying in the world
For all the sorrow of our sins
We cannot fix it on our own
Jesus is where all hope begins

For all the sacrifice we make
Still, still the devil jeers and grins
Where hunger weighs the heart with aches
Jesus is where all joy begins

How vain the void we try to fill
Ah, how inept the gain of things
Nothing, nothing can satisfy
Jesus is where all love begins

How sweet the comfort of His care
How full the forgiveness of sins
How close He comes to us through prayer
Jesus is where it all begins
