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
