Grief and heartache, pain and sorrow,
That’s what’s in this life for me;
But when all of life is over
From this pain I’ll be set free.
If I walk the straight and narrow
And do the best that I can do
When I leave this life of sorrow
I’ll go home to be with you
In the paradise eternal
Where you have a place for me;
And I’ll know eternal gladness
As your reward to me;
So let me always keep my focus
On the world beyond this earth
Where in your eternal kingdom
I will have my sweet rebirth.
Lord, I am suffering, but in the midst of my heartache, I ask that you use the words of my sorrow to somehow assist other people who have their own pain and heartache. AMEN
