WHAT A RESCUE!

Does God permit unexpected events

To fray the future with change?

And would we not attempt straightening them out?

Our times to rearrange?

.

.

Of course!  For we are so predictable.

Do not relish much the change!

A well-ordered life we would eschew!

With nothing to rearrange!

.

.

The besides, the changes we resist.

That, like, takes the breath away!

Surprises, the shock, life often brings

Death what more to say!

.

.

Sure, life would be so contained, so secure

With sorrows banished away!

And if we could do away with death

This what of heaven we say!

.

.

“Oh, death, where is thy sting?” (record)

(Remember, do not forget.)

“Oh grave, thy victory is banished!”

Eternity cannot contest!

.

.

As my father promoted to the skies

Sure, smiling down on his child.

Approbation!  And encouragement at

His successes, though so mild!

.

.

What was he saved from?  Death proclaimed?

How can anyone foretell?

Leave that all to God, who delivers

Rescues His child from Hell!

.
