O God, to You I Cry in Pain

Lyrics as Poetry

O God, to you I cry in pain
when sickness makes me weak,
when mind and body out of tune
bring fears I cannot speak.Give me the strength to face my ill,
to trust in skill and care,
to bless the hands that help me heal
and find your spirit there.Remind me I am not alone
when suffering makes its mark;
be present at my pillow’s side
and help me through the dark.Within the comfort and the love
that human touch can give,
restore in me a larger sense
of what it is to live.Allow my mind to rest in you,
and let your peace pervade
to hold me in your greater power
and not to be afraid.
