Are there any words or lyrics that have comforted you, filled your emptiness and the
When I was living in distress and helplessness,I heard a song ,the lyrics of the song gave me faith ,courage,and warm.My first time to hear this song ,I was moved to cry.I cried like as a child who was lost for a long time ,finally found his mother.
This is the lyrics of the song
Almighty God Has Been Waiting for Your Return
The Almighty pities these men who suffer deeply,
while at the same time he detests these men who do not have any consciousness,
because he has to wait, wait for a long time before he can receive an answer from them.
He will seek, seek your heart, seek your spirit,
and give you water and food,
so that you will regain your consciousness, consciousness
and no longer be thirsty and no longer be hungry.
When you feel tired
and when you slightly feel a sense of desolation of this world,
do not feel perplexed and do not weep.
Almighty God, the Watcher, is ready to embrace your coming at any time.
He is watching by your side,
waiting for your turning back
and waiting for the day you suddenly recover your memory, recover your memory:
knowing that you went out from God
and unknowingly lost your direction,
unknowingly became unconscious on the road,
and unknowingly had a “father,”
and even more knowing that the Almighty has been watching there
waiting for your return for a long, long time.
He has been expecting eagerly, waiting for an answerless, an answerless reply.
His watching is priceless,
for the sake of man’s heart and for the sake of man’s spirit.
Maybe this watching is timeless,
or maybe this watching has come to an end,
but you should know where your heart and your spirit are now.

Absolutely. The Spirit Carries On by Dream Theater will have a special place in my life ever since they played that song on a friend's funeral. I think the most killer lines are in the section
Move out, be brave
don't cry on my grave
because I am no longer here
please never let the memory of me disappear
It's really hard to hear those words without crying. Into The West by Annie Lennox has a similar effect as the third lotr movie came out just after my grandmother passed, especially the lines about the other person "just sleeping" just has a really strong impact.

These days my colleagues said a lot of my shortcomings, I was so discouraged. Although what they said was right and I accepted it, I was still frustrated that I didn’t change at all and these shortcomings were said by many friends before. So I felt so discouraged, I thought that I was too bad and didn’t change at all. Then I fell into a discouraging situation and didn’t want to do anything nor to say a word. I felt very bitter and helpless. Then I prayed to God, and He enlightened me a hymn of God’s word:
God Likes One Who Has a Resolution
1. We should have a resolution: No matter what harsh environment we encounter, what difficulty we encounter, and how weak and passive we are, we cannot lose faith in the transformation of our disposition or in the words God speaks. God gives man promises and man needs to have the resolution and the willpower, the willpower to inherit them. God doesn’t like a coward. God likes one who has a resolution. Even if you have expressed many corruptions, even if you have taken many detours, have committed many transgressions along the way, or have once resisted God, or even if some people ever had some blasphemies, complaints, or resistance against God in their heart, God doesn’t look at these. God only looks at whether one can be transformed one day.
2. As a mother knows, knows her children, so does God know, know everyone. He knows everyone’s difficulty, knows everyone’s weakness, and knows everyone’s need, everyone’s need, much more knows what difficulty, weakness, and failure everyone will encounter in the process and course of entering into the transformation of disposition. God knows this best. So, God searches man’s heart and mind. No matter how weak you are, as long as you don’t forsake God’s name and don’t leave God or this way, you will have the opportunity to be transformed in your disposition. If we have the opportunity to be transformed in our disposition, we will have the hope to be left. Since we have the hope to be left, we will have the hope to be saved by God, to be saved by God.( from Follow the Lamb and Sing New Songs)
After hearing this song I felt so warm that God likes a kindly mother who comforts me and sustains me, gives me faith and strength. This hymn is one of my favorite songs.
Whenever I was weak and passive, had no faith, I would listen to this song to encourage me. Then I would have faith and strength.

You know, I feel these urges. Urges to kill. To torture and maim. And Cannibal Corpse comforts me. It means a lot. Thank you, CC.
