32. We Hear, Lord, Your Promise

We hear, Lord, your promise: “My grace is sufficient!”
Those few simple words brought such comfort to Paul;
And though every thorn in the flesh may be different
We find in your message good news for us all.
Your strength is made perfect in times of our weakness,
When hardships assail us and pain comes along.
For you dwell within us and we learn your goodness—
And when we are weakest, in you we are strong.

Through all that we suffer, your grace is a blessing;
O Christ, you are with us to carry us through.
What hope you still offer when life is distressing!
You heal and forgive us, so we turn to you.
When pain is so great that we hardly can bear it,
We call on your name and we hear your love’s song;
You send us the comfort and peace of your Spirit,
And when we are weakest, in you we are strong.
