Comfort of Christ......
Comfort of Christ......

Cherished is the comfort
That I know in my Lord
He embraces me with love
Strengthens me in His Word
The fierce storms may come
The winds may blow with rage
Yet my dear Lord comforts me
All my fears He does assuage

Sweet is this divine comfort
Blissful to know it full well
So of this precious Gift
My lips cannot help but tell
For darkness does come
In this world we now live
Yet our Father in Heaven
To us Light does give

For when we embrace Truth
We embrace Godís comfort too
When we make Christ Lord
We find peace we never knew
Christ knows how we feel
He suffered more than do we
He became a man like us
Suffering pain to set us free

Amazing that our God
Is not one aloof and afar
Truly He knows our pain
For He became as we are
We find in the Almighty
Compassion infinitely deep
We can cry on His shoulder
On His lap we can weep

And wipe from our eyes
He will each and every tear
He comforts with eternal love
Perfect love which casts out fear
Great comfort we find then
Through each and every trial
Each challenge we embrace
Rejoicing all the while

For even the challenges
Our Lord does make sweet
It is in the trials of life
That cross and crown do meet
With the comfort we receive
Let us then comfort one another
May we rejoice in our Father
As we console sister and brother

And praise our God on High
For this comfort we receive
How precious this gift to know
For all who in Christ believe
