I Ask the Lord


 I asked the Lord to comfort me when things weren't going my way;
And He said to me, "I will comfort you and lift your cares away."
I asked the Lord to walk with me, when darkness was all that I knew;
And He said to me "Never be afraid, and I will see you through."

I didn't ask for riches, but He gave me wealth untold,
The moon and the stars, the sun the sky, and He gave me eyes to behold.

I thank the Lord for everything, and I count all my blessings each day;
For He came to me when I needed Him, I only had to pray.
And He'll come to you, if you ask Him to,
For He's only a prayer away!
