Comfort is Near, a meditation on Matthew 5:4

Judgment comes, mourn for the lost
Sin devours, mourn the cost
Loss steals, mourn its pain
Death swallows, mourn the grave
Jesus comes, all will be right
Good prevails, God is our light
Restoration approaches, all is made new
Resurrection imminent, Jesus alive
God will wipe away every tear
God with us he draws us near

I wrote this poem after putting together a podcast made up entirely of stories and passages about mourning in the Bible. It is a great way to to chew on how the Bible talks about mourning.
