Lily Of The Valley - Poem by Roy Leslie Craig

Our Beloved Mother gasped for breath
As satan clutched her weakened heart,
Forcing her soul to the Valley of Death.
She struggled against inevitable start
To misery of Hades.

Mother of God sent Her Seed
By intercession; It leaped to life
As our beloved sighed and settled to rest;
Glory Light dispelled the strife:

As angels bore her spirit above,
Youthful beauty graced her face
As testimony to her generous Love
Honored by the heavenly Grace
