Away from the Body, At Home with the Lord

2 Corinthians 5:8

 

death has forced its way upon our lives

tearing from us our peace

turning our dreams to vapour

shattering our smiles into uncounted tears

and our thoughts, flung from the trivial,

cast about in life and death

cling to God in whom there is hope

in spite of all travail and heartbreak
all our fears find their rest in Him

who holds our hearts secure

amid the trials that would shake us free

and cast us down among those who have no hope

where our despair would be real

and death itself, our vanquished foe

would be the victor

 

thanks be to God our saviour and our friend

though the punishment is sure

our salvation is as well and more

 


 

In memory of Rick Campbell
