Bringing Comfort

From Isaiah 40:31:  “But those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up on wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”

Preparing the way of our Holy Lord

Our God brings His comfort toward


His sovereignty reigns over all

From the mountains ever tall


To the fertile valleys below

His Word, permanently full


God’s Word levels life’s bumpy road

Smoothing rough patches, He molds


When the Lord speaks, change comes

His creation sings praises of welcome


Seasons arrive and fade away each year

God’s Word stands forever, without fear


Coming with His outstretched, mighty hands

God nourishes His flock across all the lands


We taste the sweetness, without strife

Forever, He delivers His Bread of Life


God’s comforting arms lovingly gather all

His rod and staff bring a comforting call


As a shepherd, He protects like none other

Caring for His lambs, better than a mother


His glory stretches endlessly across the heavens

Covering the earth with His manna, unleavened


Calling out each person by his or her name

God’s endless love covers us all the same


Our Lord never grows impatient, weary, or tired

His Word proclaims all eternity, never to expire


Rising on wings of eagles, nothing less

Sending new strength to the powerless


Delivering real power to the faint, indeed

Bringing tender comfort to those in need
