I Need a Hug

With tears in her eyes, the little girl lifts up her arms towards her Daddy,
And her Daddy picks her up and he speaks softly to her as she cries,
"It's okay. Everything will be all right. The pain will go away real soon."
And the little girl listens but she continues with her sniffles and sighs.
But gradually the sobs of the little girl become fewer and softer,
Until finally she stops crying and looks at Daddy with love in her eyes.

Do you feel sad? Are you in pain? Are your cheeks stained with tears?
Then lift up your hands and say, "Father, I need a hug from above."
And your God with the everlasting arms Who always watches over you,
will comfort you and strengthen you with His never ending Love.
