The lyrics of renowned worship leader Scott Wesley Brown in his contemporary praise song, “He Will Carry You” affirm that we can depend on the Jesus through the ministry of the Holy Spirit to always renew our faith, our hope, our courage, and our joy even in the presence of grief, loss, and death:

There is no problem so big, God can not solve it.

There is no mountain so tall, He cannot move it.

There is no storm so dark, God cannot calm it.

THERE IS NO SORROW SO DEEP, GOD CANNOT SOOTHE IT.

It He carried the weight of the world upon His shoulders,

I know, my brother, that He will carry you.

If He carried the weight of the world upon His shoulders,

I know, my sister, that He will carry you.
