When we lose someone we love,
The loss seems too great to bear
God sends us friends to comfort us,
To show that He deeply cares.
But in the dark hours of the night
When there's nobody else around,
When we feel the saddest and loneliest,
It's there God's love can be found.
It's like a soothing, healing balm
To soothe our broken hearts
The healing oil poured over us
That flows into every part
We can rest secure in God's love
And know He's by our side
He holds us when we feel as though
A part of us has died.
We can know that God will listen
When we just want to talk
And when we feel we need to cry,
We can share it with the Lord.
For He is always waiting there,
Ready with arms open wide
As we pour out the hurt within,
He pours His love inside.
Our Father above loves us so much
And will never leave us alone,
He will not forsake us in our need
To face this on our own.
He comforts us and strengthens us
And rubs us with His balm
And as the dawn breaks through the night,
We'll awake in His loving arms.
