When Life Gets So Hard

Don’t see anything? Click here to get FREE Flash Player.

I wanted to find some words on a card.
That would help to get through it when life gets so hard.

It seems you can’t bear it, perhaps can’t go on
When deep in the heart there’s no trace of a song.

Some words that would comfort when late in the night
The trials return and you’re too tired to fight.

Or the tears flow so often it seems you’ll run dry.
And life gets so tough that you just want to die.

Or at least go and hide where you’re safe from all pain.
Someplace you can rest ’til you find joy again.

What are the words you so need to hear
That will help and will heal and remove all the fear?

That builds up inside ’til you think you’ll explode
What are the words that will lighten the load?

If only I knew the right words to say.
To encourage and bless you or comfort some way.

I know not the words but this I can do.
I shall offer up prayers to the Father for you.
