It’s Gonna Be Okay

By Peter Buchwald and Caleb Jones

Verse 
Hey God, I got this burden on my heart,
and it’s tearing me apart inside.
Oh why? Does it come from foolish pride?
Is it selfishness inside my soul?

Chorus
Please someone say it’s gonna be okay 
before I lose hope.
There’s nothing to feel here– 
I’m just trying to be real here.
God, I want to hear you say,
“It’s gonna be okay.”

Verse 
I find when I take this path I make,
I’m on a mountain of mistakes and pain.
Oh why? Why do I forget the truth?
All things that you say and do for me?

Chorus
Please someone say it’s gonna be okay 
before I lose hope.
There’s nothing to feel here–
I’m just trying to be real here.
God I want to hear you say,
“It’s gonna be okay.”
