Painful Memories - Poem by Lester Dean

Those painful memories, please erase them with your shed blood dear Lord I pray.
Yesterday is gone, and yes that forever, oh how You have eased the
One bright cloudless, beautiful, sunny, shining day, Christian reunions yes
There will be, no sorrow, dread, fear, or worries we will ever
Experience again.
This former life and everything with it will then be passed away.
What tomorrow may hold, may it be now and throughout starry eternal space
And time be in the precious, loving Master's almighty hands.
Why should troubling thoughts ever attack my mental processes?
Peace of mind is close as my next prayer.
For there is not any burden too great for Him to bare.
For the Eternal Shepherd always cares, has feelings for us and
Understands us like no one else can.
Forever I see and that eternally etched above on endless clouds:
Yes I repeat Jesus cares.
Why not give it all to the Savior?
Even today!
