Reflection:When I need a word of comfort, He is there! / When I struggle 'neath a burden, He is there! / When the blue skies turn to grey, And I cannot find my way At the closing of the-day, / He is there! When I cannot face tomorrow ,He is there! / When my life is filled with sorrow, He is there!   / When I dread the coming dawn, And it seems I can't go on, / When my hope is almost gone He is there! -Bill Car
