“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4

 (Send as a comforting eCard)

O Lord, we kneel before You,

We come to You in prayer;

O Lord, more than ever

Please show us You are here.


Tears stream from our eyes,

Stricken by this loss;

Help us, O Heavenly Father,

To bear this bitter cross.


Protect those precious souls,

The souls we lost that day;

O Lord God, please embrace them,

Hear us as we pray.


You are most holy,

You are perfect and good;

Help us, precious Father,

Cling to You as we should.


Though evil You never cause,

You permit our free will;

Yet even when evil strikes,

Over all You reign still.


All things You work for good,

Even this tragedy;

All things You work for good

In the scheme of eternity.


So when our hearts quaver,

When tears fall from our eyes,

When our voices tremble

In heart-breaking cries,


Come near to us, O Lord,

Pull us close to Your heart,

Remind us that from You

We will never part.


Show the glory of Heaven,

Show us the ones we mourn,

Show us how in joy

These souls have been reborn.


We see them in Your arms,

We see Your angels too,

How comforting to know

Our children are with You.


Comforting to know also

You endured tremendous pain;

You watched Your Son die

That life we would gain.


Though we cry bitter tears,

We find comfort as we pray;

We will see our loved ones

And You, Father, one day.


We praise You, Lord,

You perfect all things with love;

You give us faith to know

Our children are safe above.


So our hearts we offer You

In humble adoration;

Lord, save all sinners too,

Lead them to salvation.


You seek to save all,

Even those filled with hate;

Your love can transform all,

For Your love is so great.


All things You perfect,

All You beautify too,

So in this time of mourning

We trust all the more in You.


Yea, we kneel before You,

We come to You in prayer;

O Lord God, more than ever

We know that You are here.
