When your loved one has fallen asleep in Jesus
And you are left behind for a time to carry on
Each day seems to last a thousand years
As you search for the eagle's wing to soar upon
Memories haunt your waking hour
And grief steals precious time from slumber
Your vow of love had made you one by your Lord's almighty power
That no man by his might could ever put asunder
The God you love and Whom so loved you
Is the same God Who gives and also takes away
For it was His only Son He first gave to us and then withdrew
A mystery for sure - His Way is not your way
After a time has passed
When your pain has lost some sting
No longer drowning in your tears, your sorrow upon Him cast
Like a river washing over your soul, you have found the eagle's wing
Soaring now above the fray
The Son of Light upon you poured
His Truth resounds - He is the Way!
Death has come, but HALLELUJAH! ~ Life in Him has been restored
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
