Lyrics
Where Do You Turn?
Lost in despair, I feel lonely and afraid.
All the people I love best have let me down.
I feel defeated; that the race for me is lost.
Worthless feelings and senselessness abound.
Yet, I know I'm not a quitter, and giving up is wrong.
I must pick up the pieces and move on.

Where do you find
The strength to walk just one more mile?
Where do you gain
The courage to smile just one more smile?
When all seems dark and your heart is feeling low,
Where do you turn? Where do you go?

Asking these questions, in my mind I seem to see
Someone comforting the people through their tears.
He gives them hope now for a kinder, better world
Without wickedness or suffering or fears.
Oh, I like His world better and giving up is wrong,
But I can't find the power to move on.

Where do you find
The strength to walk just one more mile?
Where do you gain
The courage to smile just one more smile?
When all seems dark and your heart is feeling low,
Where do you turn? Where do you go?

In my mind I see Him suffer while kneeling down to pray.
He bears His cross so bravely, though friends all turn away.
His suffering was greater than I could ever dream.
He gave up His life, and did it all for me!

He reaches out, wishes me to take His hand,
Gently soothes the bitter aching of my soul.
Extends compassion with the burden that I bear,
And He helps me to support the heavy load.
Then He helps me find the courage to give it one more try.
I'm not alone, for He is by my side!

That's where you find
The strength to walk just one more mile.
That's where you gain
The courage to smile just one more smile.
When all seems dark
And your heart is feeling blue,
Your Savior cares. He'll comfort you.
