From the Father

When the hope that once held you together is lost

When your heavy heart drags you to the floor

When the fear that you’ve been fearing claws its way in

And the devil laughs in your ear

Know that I am there

Through every trial

Through every tear

My hand holds yours always

Don’t let go

– a.s.
