I Can and I Will

This challenge is hard, but I’m going to do it;
This trouble is tough, but I’m going through it.

Trouble can’t last forever not much longer;
I will not be discouraged, I’ll get stronger.

Though the light gets dim, and I don’t know what to do;
Jesus holds me close, and He will see me through. 

My mind settles down, my lips form a prayer;
I don’t know how exactly, but God gets me there. 

Jesus is empowering me to do it;
Jesus is with me as I go through it.

One step at a time I can climb this next hill;
I believe that I can, and I know that I will.
