the pain is the healing

Don’t ask me to take away
The hurt your heart is feeling;
You will understand someday
That the pain is the healing.

Cry, let the tears flow freely,
But know they are fleeting.
I’ll hold you through this valley;
Let the pain be the healing.

Remember, dear one, the day
On the cross I was hanging;
I suffered and bled, to pay
The pain to be your healing.

So when this ache soon becomes
A memory less rending,
Find peace because you succumbed
To the pain that was healing.
