Pray Your Troubles All Away

When you feel so overwhelmed,

Discouraged and dismayed,

Take your cares to Jesus,

And pray your troubles all away.

For He’s the Friend who never faileth,

And alike to Him are night and day,

He will answer our every call,

So pray your troubles all away.

For He will give "sufficient grace,"

For whatever trials we must face,

He is touched by our every infirmity,

For our sins, at Calvary, He took our place.

So when you are burdened,

And life’s cross grows heavy to bear,

Take your problems before God’s Throne.

And obtain the solace found in prayer.

For Jesus is a very present help,

And will turn "to blue" those skies of gray,

Just take your cares to Jesus,

And pray your troubles all away.

Arkansas

(Triolet)

Arkansas is a beautiful state!

Abundant blessings, from God stream;

Scale to fifty ... a fifty does rate;

Arkansas is a beautiful state!

Four seasons: you choose a best of all;

Mountains, lakes, streams, with hills so green,

Arkansas is a beautiful state!

Abundant blessings, from God stream.

The Rose of Thunder

Her night lies, a night of vision,

her edge of blue, and her palace of the sea,

in her crystal eyes and stormy skies,

her rain, is the beat of a drum,

a shade of red, to fade out the sun.

Where bound by a kiss,

she is bound by the shore.

By the moon unto her,

and her open door.

Her twilight turns to flower,

her hour, burns to gold,

her fortune, of the clouds,

that follow her heart,

that follow her shadow.

Where the wind, is a whisper,

her whisper of wonder,

her dreams are the haze,

her rose of thunder,

her rose of thunder.
