These Are the Words


These are the words that you don't want to hear
These are the words that rip your heart with fear
Please say again, I need a different answer
I'm sorry to tell you, it's true, you have cancer

My head, it was cloudy, thoughts reeling and spinning
Betrayal and anger--the end or beginning?
Mortality is fleeting--my life is erasing?
Then God says I'm here for whatever you're facing

These are the words to give comfort and peace
These are the words to make all worries cease
Please say again, will I finish this race?
Then God says, you're healed in my loving embrace
