Be still

Be still and know that God exists

He entered the world of pain

Became human, faced our shame

And said, “I forgive you.”

~

No sweeter words I have heard

Expressed with great compassion

There is One who understands

Who loves and forgives

 ~

He understands the deep pain

As the Father gave His Son

Was silent when they killed him

Sacrifice of love

~~~

He is closer than the blood

That is flowing through your veins

He is the air that you breathe

You’re held in His hands

~~ 

 

When I cannot sleep

I will arise and weep with

A friend who will never leave

I know this by faith

It’s become certain and sure

His promise always restores

 ~

I will meditate

I’ll choose my focus today

I am worn out with groaning

My tears fill my bed

And I drench my couch with tears

My eyes grow weak with sorrow

~~ 

 

The Lord hears my cry

He accepts my weak prayers

There is no language to speak

Unspeakable loss

I can only surrender

To the one who understands
