ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
Our world is filled with sadness – depression all around,
Where can we turn for comfort when there’s none,
The darkness draws around us – no respite can be found,
We search for answers but they never come.
The days close in upon us, we feel that no one cares,
We walk in darkness and in hopelessness,
We lose our will to go on, our eyes are filled with tears,
We think we’ll never be free of the mess.
It’s then that God will rescue, when we are laid down low,
And come before His throne with saddened hearts,
He grants us His forgiveness, our sins He will let go,
The sting of death no longer He imparts.
A child will come and lead us, His promises are real,
The work has been completed through the Son,
Our God will not forsake us, through all the things we feel,
With Him we can face life with joy and zeal.
Many years ago He came to earth to be a man,
Experienced things that we now suffer through,
He was also there before our time on earth began,
And soon He will return for me and you.
