    The Lord knows
    the pain you feel, the grief you carry,
    the tears you cry, the memories you'll cherish, the comfort you'll need, the strength you'll require.
    Thinking of you today
    and praying the tender ministry
    of the Lord will comfort you.
    Hear me, O Lord; for Thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of Thy tender mercies.
    Psalm 69:16 KJV
