You hold us all
As tight as we can bear, Lord,
And help us through the trials
We must face.
Please help us to be patient
In our sorrows,
So we can all endure them
With your grace.
You hold me (Psalm 18:48; NLT).
Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).
In everything we do, we show that we are true ministers of God. We patiently endure troubles and hardships and calamities of every kind (2 Corinthians 6:4; NLT).
You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich (2 Corinthians 8:9; NLT).
He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word (Isaiah 53:7; NLT).
