1) Sometimes I feel dis–cour-aged and think my life in vain.

2) Sometimes it seems I dare not go one step far-ther on; 

3) Oh what a friend is Je–sus, sure an-chor for my soul.

1) I’m temp-ted  then  to  mur-mur and of my life com-plain.

2) and from my heart all cour-age has slipped away and gone. 

3) So ten–der,  true  and grac-ious, I’m safe in  his  con–trol.

1) But when I think  of   Je–sus and all He’s done for me.
