Bottom Of The Barrel

V
DROWNING IN A DESPERATE SEA
THERE I WAS, POOR PITIFUL ME
EVERYTHING I TRIED JUST LET ME DOWN
THEN I FOUND A HELPING HAND
PULLED ME OUT OF MY SINKING SAND
AND THERE I WAS AT LAST ON SOLID GROUND

IF YOU’RE IN THE SAME SHAPE I WAS IN
THEN LISTEN CLOSELY TO THIS MY FRIEND

CHORUS:
HE’LL LIFT YOU UP FROM TH EMIRY CLAY
SET YOUR FEET ON A ROCK TO STAY
PULL YOU FROM THE DEPTHS OF WHERE ESCAPE SEEMS NARROW
THERE’S NO LIMIT TO HIS CARE
HIS GRACE AND MERCY’S EVERYWHERE
HE CAN GO TO THE BOTTOM, OF THE BOTTOM, OF THE BARREL

V
LIFE CAN BRING US TO OUR KNEES
BUT ISN’T THAT HOW IT REALLY SHOULD BE
WHEN WE TRY TO MAKE IT ON OUR OWN
HE’LL BE THERE TO PICK US UP
WHEN DOUBT ROLLS IN AND THE GOING GETS TOUGH
HE SHOWS UP AND MAKES HIS PRESENCE KNOWN

SO IF YOU FIND YOU NEED A LITTLE HELP
THERE’S NO NEED TO TURN TO SOMEONE ELSE

BR
JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU CAN’T BE FOUND
YOU’LL LOOK UP AND SEE HIM REACHING DOWN
