Steve Gulley

It seems that every time I need Him
My Lord is always there;
When no one else seems to have the time,
Jesus always cares;
I wonder just what I might do
If I called His name one day
And the Heavens above just opened up,
And I heard my Saviour say.

"I'm through patching it up,
I'm through giving you love
Though your world is torn apart,
And I'll never again wash away your sin
Or mend your broken heart,
I'm through bearing your burden's 

And all of your hurt'n
And giving your poor heart ease.
Tell me why should I do anything for you;
You never do anything for me."

But I thank my God in Heaven each night
My Lord is not that way
I know He's watching over me
Each and every single day
And I don't have to wonder about His love
'Cause his mercy flows so free
And I know just exactly what He'll say
When I'm down on my knees

I'll always patch things up,
I'll always give you love,
When you world is torn apart
No matter where you've been,
I'll wash away your sin
And mend your broken heart.
I'll always bear all your burdens 

And all of your hurt'n
And give your poor heart ease;
Yes, I'll always do anything for you
No matter what you do to me.


  1. Steve Gulley wrote patchin it up! And you changed some of the words! God woke him up at 4am and he got out of bed and wrote it! And you changed gods words! The words he gave steve!!! Hmmmm!

    1. Thank you for the information regarding the author of this song. I will make the necessary corrections. As to changing the words, I merely typed out the lyrics being sung by the group, and I'm sorry if that offends you. The fact is, there are no such things as "lucky stars," and even if there were, do they deserve our thanks? Whether or not that particular phrase is from God is debatable. However, if the author would like me to correct the words on this site, I would be happy to do so. I mean no offense to anyone. I'm simply trying to share encouragement through song.

  2. What a beautiful song. So thankful for a God that's living and care for us.
