Comfort Meb

Today I had a grieving spell
And falling on my knees,
I wept my way to Jesus,
For He knows me so well.
I cried in desperation,
O Comfort me, Lord, please!

His loving arms around me,
He gently wiped my tears
As He has done so often
In my journey through the years.
In His Word He promised
My comforter to be.

Then He brought to memory
From His Holy Word,
Not only does He comfort,
But He empowers me
And sends me out to others
Commanding, "Comfort ye!"
