I REFUSE TO BE
I refuse to be discouraged, To be sad, or to cry;
I refuse to be downhearted, And here's the reason
I have a God who's mighty, Who's sovereign and
I have a God who loves me, And I am on His team.
He is all wise and powerful, Jesus is His name;
Though everything is changeable, My God remains
My God knows all that's happening; Beginning to
His presence is my comfort, He is my dearest
When sickness comes to weaken me, To bring my
head down low,
I call upon my mighty God; Into His arms I go.
When circumstances threaten To rob me from my
He draws me close unto His breast, Where all my
And when my heart melts within me, And weakness
He gathers me into His arms, He soothes my heart
The great "I AM" is with me, My life is
in His hand,
The "Son of the Lord" is my hope, It's
in His strength I stand.
I refuse to be defeated, My eyes are on my God;
He has promised to be with me, As through this
life I trod.
I'm looking past all my circumstances, To
Heaven's throne above;
My prayers have reached the heart of God, I'm
resting in His love.
I give God thanks in everything, My eyes are on
The battle's His, the victory is mine; He'll help
me win the race.
