Grief and Grace

Updated: Dec 18, 2023


Grief upon Grief:

Grace upon Grace!

On our earthly trek

To our Home Place.


Dark clouds hover-

Surreal and so still-

Heaviness of heart

Deep sorrow we feel.


Loss comes with fury,

Taking what was lent;

God gives, and He takes

By Divine appointment.


In the losing and parting,

Memories become history.

God's timing and ways

Are to us a High mystery.


While darts of change pierce

Our lives - never the same,

Immutable Love measures

Grace to our weary frames.


Grace to mourn the absence

Of past gifts from His hand;

Grace to grow strong in Him -

With faith and courage to stand.


Grief upon grief:

Grace upon grace!

For grace in grief,

To God be praise!
