“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)


When challenges encounter,

When trials beset me,

When obstacles and mountains

Are all that I see,


When my heart aches,

When tears brim in my eye,

When I long to escape,

To be free and to fly,


I look up to You,

Your Name I call,

I ask You to lift me

When I stumble and fall…


You smile at me,

You reach out Your hand,

You remind me lovingly

Only good You planned,


You show me the horizon

So beautiful and bright,

You kiss my pathway

With Your sweet sunlight,


You whisper of heaven,

Of treasures in store,

You show I have everything,

Indeed even more.


Yes, You dry my tears,

You kiss away each one

With soft sparkling rays

Of the shining sun.


So I need not worry

When I stumble and fall,

As You are here with me

Always through it all,


You bring joy to my heart,

A sparkle to my eye,

You set my soul free

To soar and to fly…


Yes, beautiful bliss

Is now the vista I see,

As You, my sweet Jesus,

Are here with me!
