In Time of Loss
Lonely is the home without you,
Life to us is not the same;
All the world would be like heaven, 
If we could have you back again.

A light is from our household gone, 
A voice we loved is still, 
A place is vacant in our home, 
That never can be filled.

May the God of Love and Mercy,
Care for our loved one who is gone, 
And bless with consolation,
those left to carry on.

The happy hours we once enjoyed, 
How sweet their memory still, 
But death has left a vacant place, 
This world can never fill.

How dearly we loved you, 
And prayed you might live, 
But Jesus just beckoned, 
And we had to give.

God gave us strength to bear it, 
And courage to fight the blow, 
What it has meant to love you, 
God alone will ever know.
