This world is filled with sorrow, death and pain,
And it will break your heart ten thousand times.
You suffer grief and tears fall down like rain;
Such agony and torments seem like crimes.
These are the times when Christ is close to you;
He bears such love to heal your broken heart.
He knows exactly what you’re going through;
Unlike the others He will not depart.
The mean and cruel can crush your spirit down;
You feel so poor and mean in your own eyes.
Reach out your weary arms, He’s all around.
The Saviour mends your soul and soothes your cries.
You’re not alone, just feel His presence near;
Lean into Jesus, He will calm your fear.
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18 NIV
