By Tom D Blakely
Anxious hearts will cause depression
Life is choked in gloominess.
Sorrows, cares, and fears will stifle
All our joy and happiness.
Lord awake us to this failing
In ourselves or those we know.
Help us with a word of gladness
Lift our hearts Your Light to show.
It is not Your will that Christians
Should be burdened in this way.
Great Physician, heal the needy
With a caring word today.
‘Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.’
