this world by sadness shroud
wrings tears from every joy
pain the uncared for guest
of every celebration
life begins while knowing death
however far its horrid end
the joy of each day’s step
mingles deep, abiding grief
would that recompense would come
while love still weeps its loss
dear God assuage our tears
and within Your peace enfold us
Written after hearing of the murder
of Tim Bosma; family man, Christian,
for whom we had been praying all week.
Bruce Cockburn’s rocket launcher is
far too small for such a sadness.
Thank God His justice is far more satisfying.
Each New Day A Miracle
