“Save Your Tears” by Paul Callus

Save Your Tears Image

You’ve seen the writing on the wall
Now time is ripe to heed His call;
It makes no sense to overstay,
The angels wait to lead the way.

When breath is weak and parting nears
Do not betray your pain with tears.
Just hold her hands – she’ll feel your love,
Then leave the rest to God above.

“His Word” by Mary Bone

His word is like a beacon
that shines in the night.
His word guides us onward,
with the brightness of a light.
His word continually beckons,
to show others the way
and we know he watches over us
at work and at play.
