Sunday Songs - O Heart Bereaved and Lonely


1. O heart bereaved and lonely,
Whose brightest dreams have fled
Whose hopes like summer roses,
Are withered crushed and dead
Though link by link be broken,
And tears unseen may fall
Look up amid thy sorrow,
To Him who knows it all

2. O cling to thy Redeemer,
Thy Savior, Brother, Friend
Believe and trust His promise,
To keep you till the end
O watch and wait with patience,
And question all you will
His arms of love and mercy,
Are round about thee still

3. Look up, the clouds are breaking,
The storm will soon be o’er
And thou shall reach the haven,
Where sorrows are no more
Look up, be not discouraged;
Trust on, whate’er befall
Remember, O remember,
Thy Savior knows it all

Words by Fanny Crosby, new melody by Leigh Nash & Stu G

 I hadn't heard this before our miscarriage but I happened to pick up Leigh Nash's new album Hymns & Sacred Songs at the library soon after and this song immediately jumped out at me. Really, the whole album is great.
