At The Edge Of The Clift

She drove way out there
Standing at the edge of the clift
She was quickly running
Out of reasons, why she should live

She bowed her head low
And, whispered this silent prayer
For, she was fresh out of friends
Or, any other reasons to care

'Dear Lord, please forgive me
For, I just can't go on
I've lost my faithfull husband
As well as my baby son

I know that it is said
That forgiveness, you shall give
But, this world is just too cruel
And, I have no reason to live

I lost my faithfull husband
In that war far across
But, my precious little boy
Was my hearts greatest lost

So please forgive me
As I jump off this ledge
May I see my loved ones
When I dive over this edge

So deep into the water
Is where she did dive
Knowing she couldn't swim
She didn't want to come out alive

Suddenly there was a bright light
And a strong arm around her waist
Pulling her from the water
She knew instantly, it was from grace

There on the bank, stood Jesus
Reaching out his hands
Pulling her to safety
surrounded by an Angel band

He said 'I know how you're hurting! '
'But it's not your time to go
For, I have more plans for you
As each one happens, you shall know'

'So trust in me my child
And, give your heart a rest
For you, shall soon find out
Life is full of all kinds of tests! '

'Just have faith in Me
I will keep an eye out for you
Just pray, as you feel the need
And, keep that loving heart pure and true
