A dear friend was fervently grieving over the news that his wife had been diagnosed with malignant brain tumor. The prognoses was grim. This was my attempt to help him surrender his grief to the Almighty Physician.

Update: This event occured in 2005. My friend's wife is, miraculously, still with him! Doctors can't explain it, but God can.




So hard to force your mind to be at ease



When things go wrong and we are hard to please



Our minds go spinning ‘round, like a top



If only we could just make it stop



We beg the Lord to please, give us rest



Although we do believe, He knows best



Our worldly minds refuse to let go



To let Almighty God run the show



When hearts are sad we do not understand



The plan God has for us that is so grand



So stop and let your sad hearts realize
God's hand is always there to tranquillize
