Hymn for a Troubled Heart

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.

Jesus

You Are

Words © Mollie Pearce McKibbon 2013

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.

 

Chorus:

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.

 

 

Do you think this needs another verse?  Please give me your opinion.  I will greatly appreciate the help.
