Comfort for my readers:


In the dark of the midnight have I oft hid my face,

While the storm howls above me, and there’s no hiding place.

‘Mid the crash of the thunder, Precious Lord, hear my cry,

Keep me safe till the storm passes by.

Chorus                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Til the storm passes over, till the thunder sounds no more,

Till the clouds roll forever from the sky;

Hold me fast, let me stand in the hollow of Thy hand,

Keep me safe til the storm passes by.

…written by Mosie Lister, recorded by Bill Gaither.

Does going through grief itself strengthen us? Or, is it God who is strong in our weakness? Or both?

What do you think?
