Holy, living water

Flowing from Father’s hand

Deliverance blesses

Saving from sinking sand


Comfort’s spring renewing

Proclaiming Father’s love

Selfless with compassion

Sending grace from above


Tragedy reaches out

Hearing each heartfelt cry

Spirit guiding prayer

Bringing forth hope from high


Actions follow His light

Sharing words of support

Father’s eternal spring

Returning ship to port


Oaks of righteousness call

Comforting life like rain

His mercy never ends

Trusting Father again

From Psalm 72:12-13:  “For He delivers the needy when they call, the poor and those who have no helper.  He has pity on the weak and the needy, and saves the lives of the needy.”

When I am criticized, injured, or afraid, there is a Father who is ready to comfort me.

From Psalm 86:17:  “Show me a sign of your favor, so that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.”

Vance Havner Quote

No journey is complete that does not lead through some dark valleys.  We can properly comfort others only with the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.

From Psalm 94:19:  “When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.”
