When Your Hope Is Gone

Poem By Blair Jarrells

My heart grew more fonder.
Each time I saw you at your best.
So happy and wholesome.
And filled with cheerfulness.
Then suddenly you began to falter.
And your eyes grew dim
But you'd always remember to give praise to him
Then slowly, as you grew weaker each day.
Tears came to my eyes each time, I'd see you kneel and pray.
For life is short, and oh so brief.
To see you in such pain, brought my heart such grief.
So gather around you, all of you love ones.
Don't just sit there all alone.
There's nothing left but sadness, when your hope is gone.

If you're ever sad and worried,
and just don't care, just bow
your head in a silent prayer. Never
just sit and cry. Just keep your

He Watches Over Us

Lord please shed your light upon us.
With your love and tenderness care.
As we count our many blessings.
Each time we bow our heads in prayer.
