The candle of HOPE
Hope for the hopeless and hope for the lost.
No matter the price, Christ has paid the cost cost.
Jesus has come and was willing to pay
Because of Jesus I go free
Because He suffered there for me
Because He stayed and did not run
Because He said 'Your will be done'
The door was closed firm, and the way was blocked.
It would not open, even though I'd knocked.
So I stood outside, unnoticed by you.
My arms opened wide. I love you, I do.
My dear Mum, I miss you so very much.
Just hearing your voice and feeling your touch.
But you will always be a part of me
living on in every memory.
Sometimes sad things happen in our life
they flare up suddenly and cause us strife.
The barriers that we put up against the flow
break down in floods of tears and sorrow.
For many years I have sought to be healed.
Paid doctors' fees and to the priests appealed
But alas all my efforts were in vain
And I don't think I will get well again
His body was broken
And His blood was shed
Words of love spoken
When He bowed His head
