The Balm Of God's Love

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.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39


Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, "Write: 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'" "Yes," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them."

Revelation 14: 13
