Disaster was awaiting you.
Your life has blowouts when you chance
An unexpected circumstance:
The friend who knew your heart betrayed
The spouse you pledged your life to strayed
The babe you longed for was stillborn
For life that might have been, you mourn
A tragic illness diagnosed
The unrelenting pain you host
The sudden loss of one held dear
You can’t believe she’s not still here
Your children, holding all your dreams
Sidetracked by Satan’s evil schemes
Imprisoned for a traitor’s lie
By judge whose justice went awry
The fire, the floods, the raging wind
Your home destructs and all within
The job lost you had worked life-long
The money you had saved all gone
The plans you had created, crashed
The goals you’d set your heart on, smashed.
Take heart, my friends, your God is near.
There’s not a prayer He does not hear.
There’s not a single tragedy
That His all-seeing eye can’t see.
His love’s like none you can compare;
Your every pain and loss, He’ll share.
With Him there is no hopelessness;
In perfect peace, your heart can rest.
