troubles come and troubles go,
long nights, me pacing the floor.
when will these problems ever end,
where can i find a friend;
for jesus christ will abide, he’s on your side.
sometimes dark clouds fill my sky,
people don’t always know why.
that’s when i hear down in my heart,
jesus, my lord won’t depart,
for he’s always been my guide, he’s on my side.
he’s on your side,
he will be with you in trouble,
all your prayers he will not deny.
he will hear your faintest cry.
he’s on your side.
love stays, it will never go away;
he’ll stay, n-body but jesus, i know.
