about

Tender God was written in response to tears shed by the singer's mother upon sharing the news of a friend's death. Her friend died of cancer that was initially misdiagnosed. Tender God is a sung prayer for comfort to be poured out for all those who are grieving the passing of a loved one and holds the hope of their living on in a new way. Tender God has been sung at memorial services and other occasions where its message brings healing. Listen, and we think you will agree that it is a beautiful song.

lyrics

In times of pain,
In difficult times of loss,
We search for softly whispered words,
That will bring comfort.
Knowing that we all must bear this cross,
When loved ones pass,
We all must feel that hunger.

Tender God, touch them,
When sadness comes flooding in.
Touch them with your Spirit,
So that new life
Can begin...

We walk upon this earth
For a little while,
And nothing's more delightful,
Than to see a loved one's smile.
Then the time comes
They're no longer there.
Memories remind us
Of the love we share.

Tender God, touch them,
When sadness comes flooding in.
Touch them with your Spirit,
So that new life
Can begin...

A dear one
Has flown away
Like a butterfly,
Flown away,
Fly, Spirit Butterfly,
Fly to the Spirit Sky
Oh, fly,
Lovely Butterfly,
Fly...
