    ~Sorry For Your Sad News~ So sorry to hear your sad news Of the loss that's come your way May God be near to strengthen you And comfort you today May the love of Christ uplift you To dispel all nagging fear As He leads you onward step by step In all that He holds dear May His own peace fill your heart As in His love you rest Content within each day to know His will unfolds to bless I pray in the pressing hurt and grief You will find His heart enough To be assured in all His hand is holding you with love
