God of comfort hold me near,
gently wipe away sorrow's tear.
Strengthen me through this trial.
Walk with me each and every mile.
When Satan tries to discourage me;
LORD, hear my fervent plea.
Answer me quickly when I call
ere I stumble and fall.
Be with me through darkest night.
Renew my hope with morning light.
Sustain me with your peace
until this life and sorrows cease.
Restore the happiness I once knew
as I continually praise you.
Then forever to be with thee
from earthly cares I will be free.
