Depression Road

I was sad and lonely.

Depression was my friend,
Until I got down on my knees
And let My Savior in.

He lifted all my burdens
And forgave my every sin.
He took away my sorrow
And helped me live, again.
I walked around with teardrops
just streaming down my face.
I knew I couldn't last, for long,
In that cold and lonely place.
Then, the Savior rescued me
With His Amazing Grace.
So, now, I'm smiling all day long.
He replaced my teardrops with His song.
My soul is light.
He bore my load.
For, it was dark, as a dungeon,
Out on Depression Road.

I cried unto thee, O Lord, I said,
"Thou art my refuge and my portion,
In the land of the living.
Psalms 142:5
