An illness came on, oh so fast,To one I hold so dear,
And as I wept I heard a voice
Saying. “Child, I am here.”
“Give me your worry, I’ve got this.
All you need do is trust.
Your faith is all I need this time,
But Child, it is a must.”
And so I gave it all to Him,
I surrendered my tears,
And when the Vet said it was bad,
I turned from my worst fears.
Today I woke with wariness
That soon became relief,
For God fulfilled His word to me.
He took away my grief.
I know, someday, I’ll face the tears
That God won’t take away.
He’ll give me strength to face them then,
But this is not that day.
In you, Lord my God, I put my trust.
