The Comfort of The Lord (2) (19.1.10)

“The comfort of The Lord is available to all,

                                           is found by very few.

The comfort of The Lord is received with a smile,

                                         is sought by those without.

The comfort of The Lord is a blessing to the mournful,

                                         is solace to the troubled.

The comfort of The Lord is a hug where one is needed,

                                         is shelter from a stormy blast,

                                         is a handhold on a cliff,

                                         is a refuge from despair,

                                         is affirmation of a hope,

                                         is a word on time.

The comfort of The Lord draws a chair up to a table,

                                          affirms the counsel for the spirit,

                                          upholds a lamb within the soul,

                                          encloses and enfolds,

                                          carries the lonely back to safety,

                                          mends the broken-hearted.

The comfort of The Lord is a whisper in the trees,

                                             a vision for the uncertain soul,

                                             a dreaming in the twilight.

The comfort of The Lord overcomes memories not valued,

                                         overcomes memories of conflict,

                                         overcomes memories of derogation.

The comfort of The Lord hears every voice that calls,

                                         answers the sincere,

                                         attends until comfort is attained,

                                         can place feet upon a slope.

The comfort of The Lord can restrain a hand from habit,

                                         can modify desire,

                                         can distract addiction.

The comfort of The Lord can command the angels.

The comfort of The Lord is the measure for the moment,

                                         overflows the cup,

                                         anoints as oil upon the head,

                                         is a mercy seat of God,

                                         imparts a testimony to the soul,

                                         verifies the God of Love.

The comfort of The Lord weans from the milk onto the meat,

                                         brings a lamb before the shepherd,

                                         precedes all steps which follow the pathway home,

                                         reveres The Spirit with a flame,

                                         has tongues of praise for the weary soul,

                                         supports a desolated soul.

The comfort of The Lord resolves the vicissitudes of life,

                                                   the attacks of demons,

                                                                  launched by the foe of man.”
