Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air.
I know I can count on you.
Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord, I just don't care".
But you've got the love I need to see me through.

Sometimes it seems the going is just too rough.
And things go wrong no matter what I do.
Now and then I feel like life is just too much.
But you've got the love I need to see me through.

When food is gone
You are my daily meal
When friends are gone
I know my saviour's love is real
Your love is real

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air.
I know I can count on you.
Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord, I just don't care".
But you've got the love I need to see me through.

Every once in a while I say "Lord I can't go on"
Every once in a while I get to feeling blue
Every once in a while it seems like I am all alone
You got the love I need to see me through

Occasionally my thoughts are brave and friends are few
Occasionally I cry out "Lord what must I do?"
Occasionally I call up Master make me new
You've got the love I need to see me through

Sometimes I feel like saying "Lord, I just don't care".
But you've got the love I need to see me through.
