When hurt eats deep and comfort flees,
when heartache brings you to your knees,
when all words fail, this you must know.
The Savior loves you so.

When terror and the darkening skies
bring fear that ever near you lies,
when dear things fade, this you must know.
The Savior loves you so.

When all that once made sense is gone,
when silence takes the place of song,
when cold invades, this you must know.
The Savior loves you so.

When no one here can understand
the wretched pain of empty hands,
when life itself drains from your soul,
there’s one thing you must know.

Above the grief, above the flood
of hurt that pools like human blood,
above your sea of deepening woe,
there’s still one thing to know.

Yes, in the ravages of loss,
you’ll feel His Presence, feel His Cross.
Ease into Him, and you will know
your Savior loves you so.


“This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”
Lamentations 3:21-23 KJV

Your story gave me so much peace. I've read quite a few entries so far and none brough the hope to my spirit as clearly as this one. Very beautifully written. I'll give it an A+

Your words are gifts indeed! This piece is so beautiful. It is melodic, like a song. Do you write music?
