Comfort in the Lord

(For Margaret)

  1. I feel Your tears though you are far from me
    And pray Our Lord will comfort you tonight,
    Not in return for golden piety
    But for your sense of doing what is right.
  2. He will not bring the majesty of law
    Nor test your understanding of The Creed;
    He knows the diamond truth that forms your core,
    And knows the love you give leaves you in need.
  3. Empty your heart of all its suffering,
    Pour out the doubts that make you who you are;
    And He will love you as the Servant King,
    Simple and whole, the atom and the star.
