Never a Friend Like Jesus

 

Is there a heart bent o’erbound by sorrow?
Is there a life weighed down by care?
Come to the cross, each burden bearing;
All your anxiety—leave it there.

All your anxiety, all your care,
Bring to the mercy seat, leave it there,
Never a burden He cannot bear,
Never a friend like Jesus!

No other friend so swift to help you,
No other friend so quick to hear,
No other place to leave your burden,
No other one to hear your prayer.

Come then at once; delay no longer!
Heed His entreaty kind and sweet,
You need not fear a disappointment;
You shall find peace at the mercy seat.

Edward H. Joy

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4

Thankful for our Heavenly Friend~ He it is above all others that deserves the name of Friend! His is love beyond a brother’s. His comfort and care, His tender mercies for His children, are boundless. May all of His children everywhere find solace in prayer for whatever trial He sends them through… Some through the waters, some through the flood, some through the fire, but all through the blood; some through great sorrow, but God gives a song, in the night season and all the day long.

My dearest friend here on earth is in the hospital right now and I dedicate this post to her! Her faith in the LORD is high and I’m thankful for her ability to praise the LORD in this!

May the LORD be with you Sarah, continually! May you feel His everlasting arms beneath, above, all around you!

I love you my sister!
