truth in my mind and heart lately

OUR YOUTH IS TRANSIENT LIKE A FLOWER

Our youth is transient like a flower,
That blooms, and fades, and dies;
Our life is but a summer cloud,
And like a shadow flies;
Then let us heed the warning voice—
Today its call we hear,
It speaks in deep and solemn tones,
That come from yonder bier.
The angel messenger of death,
Has gently borne away,
A dear companion from our side,
To realms of endless day;
Her voice no more will join with ours
The song of praise below,
It wakes a purer, sweeter strain,
Where only pleasures flow.

When gathered on the Sabbath morn,
Her vacant place we view,
We’ll think how bright the world she treads,
And in her steps pursue;
Be still, let every heart be still,
And all our sorrow quell,
We’ll bow submissive to His will,
Who doeth all things well.

these are hymns i found…

One thought on “truth in my mind and heart lately

  1. >What a beautiful poem; thank you for posting it. And thank you for letting me know of what’s been happening with you. I’ve been keeping you in my prayers. I too have gone through it a couple of years ago and know the pain that a situation like that brings. These last two postings are just prof that God is using this time to speak to your heart and make it even more tender yet stronger. Love you, friend!
