Sometimes life is full of good things but at other times it’s heavy going and we can feel crushed.
When Jesus lived on earth he experienced the loneliness of rejection,
the agony of bullying and the despair of having his father turn his back on him.
He knows how we feel and he is there to help us through our pain.
He is the only one who truly understands us.
Standing there with the world upon your shoulders
You need to know that the sun still shines
Don’t give up when everyone’s against you
You need to know that someone cares
Everything will soon be OK
It’ll be all right, so great, just fine
Right there in all your despair
There is one who knows
Who loves, who cares
When you’re down and the pain begins to drown you
There is one who has been there too
Jesus knows what it’s like to feel your heart ache
Let his peace swell up over you
When it seems like you’re alone
God is with you, He will never abandon you
