Looking for the name of this hymn - When you feel discouraged

Post by Cherrychickens » Wed Feb 26, 2014 10:48 pm

It's old and had these words:
When you feel discouraged
When you are lost and alone
Ask the Lord to help you
He will keep you as his own
he is your master and your friend
you will always find him there.

Any help would be so appreciated!!

That is another Don Besig and Nancy Price gem. I'm not sure, but the anthem title may be "What a Friend."
Shawnee Press (old Glory Sound) owns their anthems, I believe. I'm not sure that this one is still available, though. Sad, because it was so good.

I think the starting lyrics are a bit different...
[but that's solely from distant memory. I can't find my old sheet music for this. Our small church choir sang this to rave comments.]
...
Ask the Lord to help you;
He will keep you as his own.
[Soprano + Alto duet next...]
With a heart that's always open,
With a love that knows no end,
Everywhere life leads you,
He's your master and your friend.

[Then into What a Friend we have in Jesus]

[Then both melodies and lyrics together -- another Besig & Price signature composition]

Absolutely beautiful!
