God is Close to the Broken-Hearted

  The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit
~ Psalm 34:18

"Dear sweet mother, why do you cry?
Don't you know that your God is nigh?
He is closer to you than your very breath,
He will never forsake you, not even in death.

He created you for His joy and pleasure
And has chosen you as a special treasure,
He has graven your name on His very own palm,
He'll come to your aid with His mighty right arm.

He is your Source, He will fill your cup,
When you are down, He will lift you up.
You don't have to stay sad, for He is your Joy,
He'll help you to conquer those things that annoy.

God has given you children, which are your glory
To enrich your life and help write your story,
You're in God's perfect will for this is your calling,
He'll help you each day and keep you from falling.


You can't do it alone for your strength is weak,
Trust in the Lord and things won't seem so bleak.
Look to the Lord, not the problems you face,
You'll be amazed the way He gives you His grace.

A joyful mother is what He wants you to be,
Filling your home with gladness and glee,
Counting your blessings and praising the Lord
For His daily mercies and love out-poured."

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
~ Psalm 30:5
