So This is Sorrow

So this is Sorrow.
So this is grief.
Heart-weary, heavy-laden—
Oh, Lord! Where is Relief?

How can we bear
When wife and children weep
For sudden loss of husband, father
Whom Jesus took to keep?

How do you bear
The young wailing cries
Of those precious little ones
Who find Daddy has died?

What do we do
When life must go on?
When we feel time should stop
Because our loved one is gone?

O praise to the King
Who holds every tear,
And whispers His love
Through friends & family dear.

So amidst this pain
And grief and sorrow,
Let us find Love, Hope,
And Joy for tomorrow.


Written on June 9th, 2015, after the unexpected death of a beloved uncle.
