Be With Us - Poem by Frances E. Tolson

Hold us in your hand, Lord,
Throughout the hours of night.
Forgive us our transgressions
And lead us to the light.

We lean upon your hand, Lord,
As we journey through the day.
There's a steadiness in us
When we walk upon Your way.

Be with my love throughout the day
and keep him as he sleeps
Let him dream unconsciously
While his guardian angel weeps.

I'm sure he's dreaming about flying
High above the hills below.
He loved the freedom as he watched
The last rays of the sun's bright glow.

Although today I cannot meet
His many needs that surface.
Some day he'll walk on golden streets
And maybe even race.
