Helper of the Fatherless

I’ve been weak, I’ve been poor,
I’ve been tired, I’ve been alone
I’ve been down in the pit of despair
I have often wondered why my God
Would care about my life
As He holds me in the palm of His hand

He’s the helper of the fatherless,
Protector of the weak
Defender from my enemies,
Provider of my needs
He’s a very present help
When trials come my way
In ever storm, I can depend on Him.

I’ve been blind, I’ve been bruised,
I’ve been hurt, I’ve been abused
I’ve been wounded in the depths of my heart
I have often wondered why He came
To save a wretch like me
As I cope with all the struggles in my life

Then I hear His voice cry out to me
So soft and oh so sweet
My child, there is no need to fear
I will always be here

So hold my hand, walk with me.
Seek my face, talk with me
Keep me close by your side
And I will always be your guide

I am the helper of the fatherless,
Protector of the weak
Defender from your enemies,
Provider of your needs
I will never forsake you,
Or leave you all alone
I will be near every day of your life.

This is a so real to me. My father left us when I was five. I felt the abandonment of a kid without a father. I was fortunate to have an amazing Mom, and an older brother who always let me hang with him. It took me more than 4o years to reconcile with my father. We got quite close before he passed away 10 years ago. I can’t help but wonder how many of the protesters are without a father. How many do not know that love that only a father can fulfill? How many are living with anger and bitterness over their broken family and just need a place to vent that anger? How many have turned to a life of gangs and groups to get the family feeling in their lives? The need Father God more than anything

Psalm 68:5s KJV
He is a father to the fatherless
