For the immense grief affecting our Albany congregations at present…….. in particular the family Eikelboom and Louw and friends……..in their sorrow xo
“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence,
so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in
our time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
In need of comfort, in need of peace,
Sorrows pile up and double increase.
The sun has disappeared and the sky ‘s a dark grey,
The rain falls increasingly, day after day.
Brightness has turned and darkness is fighting to remain,
The heart is shattered all over again.
A cry from the broken-hearted is quietly heard,
The aching bruised reed and the whimpering bird.
All loved deeply through this sorrow and pain,
By a Saviour who did not die on the cross in vain,
And a God whose Grace is sufficient and true,
His Spirit showers love on everyone of you.
When feet won’t move and words are too hard to say,
God will make, a perfect way,
When hearts ache and you don’t know what to do,
God is there, He comes to you.
He comes with the light from the saving cross,
He too, is saddened, by this devastating loss.
Unable to see or feel God is there,
Know with assurance you are in His perfect loving care.
His comfort is endless and His peace will always remain,
Causing the sunshine to reflect through the falling rain,
Promising to hold you each day anew,
Moment by moment guiding you through.
Trust in the power of heavens complete love,
His saving Grace is yours from above.
A Grace that takes care of all the many doubts
No matter how loud contrary shouts,
With certainty and confidence you can be sure
It is only in His Grace that makes us pure……
