With every passing moment
lies a chance for us to seize...
a fresh and new atonement
if we ask on bended knees.
For time is marching on and on
to meet the judgment date,
and time won't wait for anyone..
with hours growing late!
And every passing hour here
is precious and so dear,
will hold our faith and power near
to ban the curse of fear.
So, every passing minute now
bar Satan from the way;
with heart and soul in humble bow...
just turn to God and pray.
For, time is marching , marching on,
in fast and timely rate,
but we will never be alone ...
once through the pearly gate!
Lady of Sorrows
Clothed in stone ~
Carved in tragic relief
Why do I feel your pain as my own?
Why do I share your grief?
What is the tie that binds me ~
To the figure in mourning white?
Why do watching stars find me
Sharing your vigil tonight?
What is it that hurt you so deeply
You cannot utter a word?
For in the deepest silence
The voice of grief is heard.
Why do you sit in the pouring rain
With your tears trapped within?
Do you know the bleeding pain
Of having lost a friend?
And was his life so like your own ~
You lived and breathed as one
And you have chosen to turn to stone ~
Now that he has gone?
May the new day bring you blessings
As the light comes filtering through
May your sunrise be as lovely
As a morning draped in dew
May the wind blow forth a promise
Sending sweet bouquets your way
May life seem a little brighter
As you rise to greet the day
May the daybreak render pleasure
As the birds begin to sing
May the distant roll of thunder
Bring forth a touch of Spring.
May the mist embrace the stillness
Like a fire fly in the night
May an angel walk beside you
To hold you in the light.
May the rain caress your body
And life drops flood your soul
May His Spirit come upon you
To cleanse and make you whole.
May the showers come so softly
Running gently through your hair
May you touch the living water
And know that He is there.
May the freshness bring you new life
Pushing through the tender sod
May you pause to pick a flower
And brush the hand of God.
