When the well runs dry
Or the pump won't work
Christians have a funny quirk
They keep on praising
When jobs are scarce
And the cupboard's almost bare
Believers do a thing that's rare
they keep on praising
When the car has quit
And the payment is overdue
God's children have a different view
They keep on praising
When the house is empty
With no mate to share the days
The Born Again have the queerest ways
They keep on praising
When sicknesss rears its head
And seems to have a hold
The saved are wonderfully bold
they keep on praising
When sorrow presses hard
And distress is everywhere
The Christian says a prayer
And keeps on praising
When the world is watching
To see the slightest stumble
God's own stay blessed but humble
They keep on praising
When the doubters pause
To see why we still stand
We tell them of the Promised Land
And keep on praising
That's a Christian....
That's us....
Isn't it???
