We lift you unto the Lord,
In this time of grief,
We pray the Lord will be to you
The comfort that you need
And when you have no answers
To all the questions 'why',
Know that Gid is in control
And is there by your side
He understands the way you feel
And knows the loss yoy face,
So rest in His eternal love
For there, you'll find His Grace
