If waves of sadness flood your soul,
take courage friend.
When nothing seems to help console
it’s not the end.
The One Who holds your hand today
will be there tomorrow.
He’ll make the darkness light and He
will lift your sorrow.
When you feel that the prayers you pray
are just a token.
The Lord will still be listening to
the words unspoken.
His everlasting love for you
will never wane.
He longs to mend your broken heart.
He knows your pain.
Though time has swiftly moved along,
there’s hope anew.
The Lord will never let you go,
He cares for you.
When you are all alone, remember
He is there.
Reach out and call His precious Name
for He is near.
“O Jesus, precious Jesus – Lord
I need you now.
O let Your waves of peace flow over
I come just as I am for I know
You are Love.
My help comes from You Lord of earth
and heaven above.
O lift my soul that I may joy
in You again.
I’m trusting in You Lord, for You’re
my greatest Friend”
(Psalm 121:1-2; Psalm 139: 1-17; John 8:12)
