Hymn for a Troubled Heart
I wrote this hymn recently while I was ill, thinking of those who were and sadly, still are chronically or gravely ill.

6 5 6 4 Chorus 8 8 8 8
In the hours of pain, Lord,
I become aware
When it’s hard to breathe, Lord,
You are my air.
You are my blanket in the cold,
My warm embrace as I grow old.
In the deep darkness of the night,
You are my joy; you are my light.
In the hours of fear, Lord,
I will be secure.
When it hurts to hope, Lord,
You are my cure.
In the hours of grief, Lord,
I know I am blessed.
When my heart is numb, Lord,
You are my rest.
