SONG RECORDING … PLEASE HUG THEM

Not only did I win an award for these song lyrics; but now I express much love and thankfulness for my dear friend Kathleen as well. http://www.kathleensfaithwalk.com/
Once again, she has taken the words the Lord has given me and turned them into a beautiful song.
I pray that her voice is taken by the fragrance of God’s breath and settled into the hearts and minds of many who are in need of comfort.

Thank you heavenly Father for the precious gifts you give us because of Your great love for us. May they be used for Your glory. In Jesus Name. Amen.

bible proverbs heart

PLEASE HUG THEM (A Song for Those Who Are Hurting)
Tears are welling up inside
I see so much around me
Turmoil, sadness, unbelief
Too much for this heart to see

Children crying, some dying
Hunger, thirst and poverty
No love given, no love there
Vacant eyes stare distantly

Chorus
There’s so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
So many sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug my loved ones
Friends and those in need, today
Please hug them Lord
And take their pain away

Women lost without their homes
Men despaired with no income
Families torn, separated
Floods, droughts, fires, storms make them numb

Watching death take victory
Amongst them that are so close
Feeling left behind, worthless
Overwhelmed by each new dose

Chorus
There’s so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
So many sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug my loved ones
Friends and those in need, today
Please hug them Lord
And take their pain away

So that is why, I now cry
And stand before You broken
Release them from emptiness
Let Love be heard and spoken

All Your creatures are groaning
And nothing can stay the same
Daily there is tragedy
Oh Lord! Reveal Your great Name

Bridge
Hug them like they’ve never been hugged before
Hug them till pure love opens heaven’s door
Hug them till their knees bring them to the floor
Hug them till with joy they praise and adore

Chorus
There’s so many hurting
So many feeling hopeless
So many lost, abandoned
So many sick and dying
And I’m too far away
So all I can do is pray
God, please hug my loved ones
Friends and those in need, today
Please hug them Lord
And take their pain away

    • Dear Liana
      It was only yesterday that I was thinking the about the same thoughts that you have adequately in words expressed.
      There is not a day goes by with prayer for not only you but for those
      being persecuted even put to death for their faith in Christ Jesus..
      Every blessing.

      • Hi dear Ron. So lovely to see your comment here. (For those of you who don’t know Ron, he is a blessed 91 year old friend of mine, who dearly loves the Lord and has been an incredible inspiration to me through many, many years of joy, heartache and sickness. I thank the Lord for his continual prayers and love toward myself and my family) I pray God’s abundant blessings for you.
