It happens often enough, coming without a warning
Sometimes there are signs but one may choose to ignore them
DEATH is an interesting subject no one can really ignore
Lately in preparing for a talk on a part of the Creed
I have been meditating frequently on the topic:
Forgiveness of sin, Death and Life everlasting
For me death is always not far from my mind
Funerals I do attend so often
What a blessing the Lord has given!
DEATH will usher in a change of life
Not change that is to be feared
A wonderful welcome it ought to be
The saints have realised this
Only death gives one the chance
to meet our Lord and to behold Him face to face
One thing have I lately been pondering
We have an immortal soul
Forever will it live on
So great too must our need be
to live in a pleasing manner
with Heaven as our final end
Imagine if you will and if you can
Making evil choices so as to end up in Hell
and there suffer for all eternity?
I understand better now
St Teresa of Avila pondered on Forever and Ever
Praise the Lord
I too have had the grace to meditate . . .
Thank our Lord Jesus, Saviour divine
Only You can direct our paths
Let us follow You faithfully all the days of our life!
