Hush, child, donít shed those tears.
Your Daddyís here to take your fears.
Donít be so sad - the end is near.
Just take my hand, I am here.

Hush, child, donít worry so.
I am your Friend, not your foe.
Donít worry now of where to go.
Iíve washed you clean, white as snow.

Hush, child, donít say a word.
The Truth I speak - through Me itís heard.
Donít let my words through hate be blurred.
It is through faith, you are cured.

Hush, child, just close your eyes.
Donít believe those worldly lies.
Forget all that, which money buys.
For that great wealth, a blind man dies.

Hush, child, yes, I love you.
I can forgive, all you do.
To conquer death, it must take two.
Just you and Me, Iíll see you through.

Hush, child, the storm has passed.
The sunshine on the earth is cast.
Donít let it go - to Me hold fast.
The pain is gone, with Me at last.

Hush, child, just lay in sleep.
At my side, your name I keep.
The sadness gone, the joy so deep.
Forever here, no more to weep.

The lines of this beautiful poem flowed so well--what a great echo of our Father's faithfulness and love through our tough times of doubt and suffering.

This poem is beautifully written. "Just hush, Child," sets the tone perfectly.

Very nice--needs to be set to music, with a soft acoustic guitar playing in the background.

"The sunshine on the earth is cast." That's a lovely word picture! Beautiful writing.

A very well written poem...it flowed very well and never strayed from the original mood set.

Lovely. This would be a nice poem to comfort those who have recently lost loved ones.
Sara Harricharan 08/08/07
Wow! This is so heartfelt! I like the repeating line of "Hush Child" it almost seems to fit as the title instead of "No More To weep" but good job with this, the ryhme and flow-excellent! ^_^
