In each of us there is a dam
That holds back tears and grief.
Though sometimes bitter, fearful, sad
We cannot find relief.
We sometimes feel our hearts will burst
And stress will overtake us --
It's in those times we must remember
That God will not forsake us.
Though floods may come and tears may fall
And heartaches overwhelm us
If we will heavenward lift our eyes
The Prince of Peace will calm us.
At times we need to shed a tear,
Our fears and stress release,
And crawl up in the lap of God
Where we can find our peace.
Though tears may fall as raging floods
Our God will not condemn us,
But rather he will draw us near
If in Him we will trust.
His bottle holds our many tears,
His peace our heart consoles --
Though sad and anxious we may be
His love will make us whole.
At times we must let down the gates
And freely shed our tears
As we invite the God of peace
To cast away our fears.
With thankful hearts we can embrace
His promise to remain
And know that He will faithful be
The Healer of our pain.
