This broken world of suffering souls;
So many hurting — it’s out of control.
We need a Savior, a God Who can mend.
We need a Father, Who loves without end.
We need the Spirit, Who gives us the power
To overcome Satan in ungodly hour.
Time to surrender your will unto His.
Let Him live in you, and give you His gifts.
How to hug the world’s pain?
A hug could seem so trite.
To let hope enter in again,
Make heavy burden light?
How to ease the suffering
Of untold millions’ blight?
How to bring a healing balm,
A quiet calm, a lasting peace,
A heart at ease, a healing light?
Oh heavy burden, how to bear?
The Savior’s groan does pierce the air.
