When evening falls so hard

When your own words can't seem to express the tangled web you feel inside, a friend calls... a text comes through... a song plays....

Is there hope for every man
A solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land
Is there hope for every man

Is there love that never dies
Is there peace in troubled times
Someone help me understand
Is there hope for every man

Seems there's just so many roads to travel
It's hard to tell where they will lead
My life scarred and my dreams unraveled
Now I'm scared to take a leap

If I could find someone to follow
who knows my pain and feels the weight
The uncertainty of my tomorrow
the guilt and pain of yesterday

There is hope for every man, a solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land, there is hope for every man
There is Love that never dies, there is Peace in troubled times....

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3-7)
