Abide In Me

Abide In Me

(What I imagine Jesus would say
to comfort and encourage someone)

I am with you in sorrow,
I will share your pain.
I will stand beside you when
the sun comes up again.

I’ll protect you and keep you
safe in the day,
Bring you back close beside Me
whenever you stray.

I’ll bless you and hold you
in My arms so strong,
Sing you gently to sleep
with a tender love song.

My beauty will fill
your heart with peace,
My comfort and love
will never cease.

I’ll stay with you forever,
My truth will make you free.
I’ll be your joy, your hope, your life
if you will only abide in Me.

The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty;
He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy;
He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17
