Though through the years the setting may have changed
Though some have passed from this life to beyond
May no one feel the sting of heart, estranged
May nothing shake the core of family’s bond.
Though seasons ebb and flow, to make life brief
And unapologetically steal health,
May none of us abandon our belief
In strength of kin – as therein lies our wealth.
For in God’s providence, He sets our path.
He knows our every thought, our own regrets.
And even though at times we show our wrath,
May we forgive, as Christ forgives our debts.
All praise to God for blessings He bestows,
An ever-present help amidst life’s woes.
