Poem written for Alabama Tornado victims

It was a year ago, that tornadoes came through Alabama and destroyed homes, and devastated lives.  I wrote a poem to remember those that lost their lives.

JESUS IS ALWAYS NEAR

WHEN THE STORM CLOUDS COME NEAR
AND THE TORNADOES PULL APART OUR LIVES,
WE HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR,
BECAUSE JESUS IS ALWAYS NEAR.
WHEN WE LOSE SOMEONE DEAR,
AND WE CANNOT HOLD BACK OUR TEARS,
IF WE PRAY TO OUR LORD,
JESUS IS ALWAYS NEAR.
WHEN TROUBLES ARE OVERBEARING,
AND WE HAVE NOONE TO COMFORT US,
JESUS WILL LEND US HIS EAR,
BECAUSE OUR CRIES HE WILL HEAR.
THROUGHOUT ALL TRIALS OF OUR YEARS,
JESUS IS ALWAYS NEAR.
