I Am Here For You by Emma and Stuart Townend is a song about God’s people being there for others, but avoids trite sentmentality because it is grounded in the greater truth that Jesus is there for all of his people.
I’ve experienced a lot of encouragement over the last few weeks in particular, and am thankful for the experience of God’s love though his people.

The lyrics:
When the load is hard to bear,
And the fog of fear envelops you,
Let me be the friend to share
In the pain that you are walking through.
When you stumble on this narrow road
And it feels like you’re forsaken,
There is one thing that is sure to hold –
I am here for you.
Curse the pride and burn the shame
When it chokes the voice inside of you;
Nothing is too dark to name
When you know that I am broken too.
When the cries of hurt rage in your head
And they goad you to destruction,
I can be the voice of calm that says,
I am here for you.
There’s a greater Love than mine,
That is closer than a brother;
Power to break the chains that bind,
And to comfort like no other.
He has walked this desperate road before
And He’s walking here beside you,
For through every drought and every storm
He is here for you.

I am here for you.
