In Passing

death
torment
fear
darkness
separation
abyss
sheol
dispair
entitled
mourning

Worldly wise fear it
Jaded ones jeer it
Brave words strengthen the delusion
Thin glaze of confusion
Artfully applied

How has it lost its sting
Now flies it taking wing
Wow! Hear the angels sing
Messiah’s name invoked
Despair again is choked

The good things we have done
Have only just begun
A race we ran is won
The presence of the Son

joy
thankful
hope
paradise
heavens
restoration
light
trust
rest
sleep

“For surely I will deliver you… Your life shall be as a prize to you, because you have put your trust in Me,” says the Lord.

Jeremiah 39:18
