If your heart is broken,
if you cry until tears no longer come,
if your spirit is poured out in agony
and you grieve with terrible loss,
Though the Lord brings grief,
he also shows compassion.
He does not enjoy hurting people,
or causing them sorrow.
The Lord is good to those who depend on him,
to those who search for him.
It is good
to wait quietly
for salvation from the Lord.
For his faithfulness is great,
his mercy eternal.
May you place your hope in Him.
