He Giveth More Grace When The Burdens Grow Greater by Annie Johnson Flint is a hymn about grace in the midst of great trials and suffering.
Jesus never promise us a life without problems but He did promised His Presence - the abiding Peace.
"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." John 16:33
And in 2 Corinthians 12:9, Paul wrote when talking about his infirmities:
"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase,
To added affliction He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.
When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half-done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.
His love has no limit, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men,
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth and giveth and giveth again.
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. - John 16:33 KJV
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. - 2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. - Phillipians 4:19
In the midst of sorrow or hardship, remember that His grace is sufficient for us. We might be weak but our God is strong. He has never fail us. He is with us always and will never forsake us. Let's take heart! Grace! Mercy! Strength! Peace! God has abundance! "He giveth and giveth and giveth again." Hallelujah!
