The Lord gives grace to the afflicted.
Anxiety in my heart weighs it down,
But Godís Word fills it with gladness
And releases His blessing upon me.
A tranquil heart is life to the body
And the fear of the Lord is a fountain of life.
My flesh and my heart may fail me,
My spirit may be dry and my bones break,
Sorrows and pain my afflict me,
But I will remember to fear the Lord and repent
For if I do not try to hid my sin from Him
He is faithful and just to forgive it and remove it.
Then He will bring healing to my body
And refreshment to my bones once more.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
He has great compassion on us, and binds our every wound.
He heals not only bodies, but souls and emotions as well.
Relationships are not beyond His healing power.
Bless the Lord oh my Soul. Remember all His benefits.
Recall that by His stripes all my diseases are healed.
And by His bruising all my iniquities are pardon.
Meditate on His goodness and compassion.
Rest in His presences and renew your strength
So that you can again fly with the eagles.
Abide in Him and He will restore the lost years.
For He Himself knows our frame.
He still breathes life into us each day.
He is mindful that we are but dust.
Receive His healing balm joyfully
For it is good medicine for the heart.
He still moves in the hearts of His children
Performing miracles for His glory to be seen
And His promises are fulfilled here on Earth.
One day soon, we will however be totally healed
And we will not know pain or sorrow any longer.
Look forward to that blessed and wonderful day.
