The Power of Love and a Sound Mind

by Alvin Kelly

For God has not given us
The spirit of fear
But the power of love
And a sound mind

When you're walking through the valleys
And there's trouble everywhere
And you do not know
Which way you ought to turn
Well just get down on your knees
And take it up in prayer
Yes, take it up unto the Lord in prayer

As you're facing each new trial
And temptation every day
Always keep your eyes upon the Lord
For God is always faithful
Not to suffer you
To be tempted more than
He knows you can bear

But with every temptation
He will also make
A way for you to know
That He is there
And through the precious name
Of our Jesus Christ
There is nothing that
You can not bear
