It is in God’s loving presence where we find peace

And the raging torrent in our heart does cease

His promise is sure and he disappoints never

‘I will be with you now and forever.’


Right now I pray you will be very aware 

Of the touch of his closeness helping you bear

The burden of suffering you carry today

For he cares for you and will your fears allay.


May his healing hands bring abundant relief

Giving strength, courage and trusting belief

Rest in his arms for he knows the way

To find, joy in his presence now and always.
