He is there by Linda Newman
When sorrow lies entrenched within your heart
And doubts, like ocean waves around you churn
When chaos reigns o'er life and won't depart
And for the peace of yesterday you yearn
When evil thoughts are tearing you apart
And there is nowhere left for you to turn
When dark of night persists, throughout your day
It's time to fall upon your knees and pray
