This pain cannot last forever

The word is our comfort

The spirit our comforter

The Lord is our physician

He heals all inflicted wounds

He is the cause of righteousness

He is the choice we choose

his words are a healing ointment

the words of Psalms

the name of Jesus

I pick up my matt and walk again

To sin no more—yet sin again

Forgiven and comforted

I fail and stand and grasp your hand

to tread upon untruth

To read the words of comfort

To pray and cry my comforter

To know the war still rages

Even with this battle won

No one but you Jesus

No word but you Father

This pain cannot last forever

When forever I call on you
