chorus Comfort, comfort all my people with the comfort of my word. Speak it tender to my people: All your sins are taken away. Verse 1 Though your tears be rivers running, though your tears be an ocean full, though you cry with the hurt of living, comfort, comfort. Every valley shall be lifted, every mountain shall be low, every rough place will be smoother: comfort, comfort. Verse 2 Though your eyes see only darkness, though your eyes can see no light, though your eyes see pain and sorrow: comfort, comfort. Every night will have its morning, every pain will have an end, every burden will be lightened: comfort, comfort.
