Hurt, heartache, perplexity, pain
Jesus understands them all;
Man of sorrow, acquainted with grief,
Himself drank from the cup of bitter gall.
Friend, be assured you stand not alone,
In those deep, dark depths you sojourn;
Lonely, but not alone in the valley,
Where the scorching searing threatens to burn.
Your load is weighty, wearing and hard,
One step more seems an impossibility;
The end goal is an elusive mirage,
Dreams fading, never reality.
Take heart, weary soul, alone you are not,
The Saviour this pathway has tread;
The desert of dearth is familiar to him,
Solitude, sorrow and sadness too became his bread.
Jesus knows your every sorrow,
Your pain, perplexity perfectly comprehends;
He's holding onto you, tho all hope seems gone,
Close to his heart, a love that never ends.
