When Grief Visits

When grief visits a community
When evil prevails
When innocence is crushed

Through the pain
The Comforter holds us close
The Spirit wipes away the tears
Dispels fears
Gradually heals

The prayers of the saints
Unified, led by love
Streams of mercy
Cover the wounded like a warm coat

We ask why
When God is sovereign
Why did evil encamp among us?
Why did God not stay the hands of harm

But God allows each man
The freedom to choose
Though He pulls and tugs at the heart
Still we have the choice

And we have before us the decision to forgive
We can do our part to love
So let us pray
For the Comforter to come
To wipe away the tears
Dispel the fears
And slowly heal us all
