“How often I’ve longed to gather your children, like a hen, her brood safe under her wings – but you refused and turned away” – Jesus Christ.

Let me wrap strong arms around you

and love your pain away

Shower you with kindness

Whisper, “It’s okay!”

~~~

Grief that looks out from your eyes

will melt and disappear

As held within such warm embrace

I urge you not to fear

~~~

Come closer now and you will feel

the beat of loving heart

Rest yourself upon my chest

Let my peace impart …

~~~

A fresh sense of security

not in earthly things

but in the certain refuge

of the shadow of my wings
