For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 (ESV)

Grief and joy, tears filling the same empty space

This present suffering, the testing of one’s faith

Will this pain still be there, overwhelming tomorrow

Can well-intentioned words turn back this sorrow

Is there solace ever in death’s hollow cup

Ahh! Just now the prayers of the saints raise me up

Surrounding me with Love’s perfect embrace

Kneeling at The Cross, anew, I find His mercy and grace

For there is only One, who suffered and died

Defeating our sin and deserved doom, gifting us life

Everlasting, to be with Him, our hope and promise

Christ Jesus is The Living Word overcoming my distress

And in Whom I find needed strength, peace and rest
