Light and Life

For some dear friends in a dark hour…

Light and Life

When close-knit hearts are torn apart
No gentle words suffice
To ease the pain, nor help explain
Why warmth’s been turned to ice

You cannot think, a weight this great,
To carry it alone
To understand reach for the Hand
That called your loved one home

Our mortal view, forever skewed
Can never understand
In darkest hour our only power
Is drawn from the Master’s hand

Our pain so deep, it’s He who weeps
And waits behind the veil
He’s paid the cost for every loss
To know, and then to heal

The Prince of Peace is not a thief
Each loss will be restored
From darkness light, from stillness life
In tears we trust the Lord.
