In recent weeks of grieving both the loss of my mother and the loss of our friend’s daughter to suicide, I have sought refuge in the psalms and in songs of lament. Please listen and be encouraged by these songs of lament, if you are experiencing grief of any kind. God is indeed near to the broken hearted.

Near indeed is His salvation to those who call on Him
He will incline is ear and hear their prayers
Truth shall spring out of the earth
and Justice will rain down from heaven

The Lord will guide you on a righteous path
His vindication will shine down forth as the dawn
Your people will be called repairers of broken walls
making straight the path to proclaim His reign!

O God, will You restore us, and grant us Your salvation?
