ART & POETRY BY PAUL &y KATHY BOECHER
Our lives on earth are temporal – a whisper hushed and still,
We’re placed here by the Father’s hand and through His mighty will,
He guides us through the depths of pain, He takes our hand and leads,
Washes all our sin away and cares for all our needs.
When faced with darkness, fear and loss, He lifts us in His arms,
Protecting us from Satan’s wiles, his misery and charms,
When things become too hard to bear, He takes our cares away.
He gives us hope, He shelters us, to see another day.
So turn to Him upon this day, when all seems lost and gone,
Rejoice in His unfailing love, replenished every dawn,
And when that final day arrives and death knocks at the door,
Our tears will never overtake, the glory that’s in store.
