Treasure Island

By Your Side


There are things in our lives that happen
That can cause us to run and hide
But there's a strength that runs right through us
‘cause Jesus is by our side.

He’s always there when times are tough
And when the times are good
We should remember to pull our strength from Him
Because He says we always should.

He gives us the power to overcome
He opens our eyes to see
What it is our lives are now
And what our lives should be.

Our time is only temporary
As we walk upon this earth
He’s been guiding our lives to be the best we can
From the time of our own birth.

So, find some happiness within yourself
‘cause you know how hard you’ve tried
Then, take peace in knowing the Lord is here
And that He’s standing right by your side.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
