Precious Even In Death

The LORD cares deeply when his loved ones die. (Psalm 116:15)

O merciful God, so full of mercy,
Comfort is found in remembering Your love!

So precious in Your sight,
The departed are now held peacefully in Your arms.
After a long, full life and a fierce battle till the end,
This one has now seen Jesus face to face!
Delivered from the burden of the flesh…
Once and for all.

O merciful God, so full of mercy,
Comfort is found in remembering Your love!

Taken too soon, or so it seems
yet we know God’s timing is perfect.
We long for the one who was always there,
this loving, non-judgmental soul,
who was always there.
Living the life of a free spirit,
a fun-loving soul, a peacemaker.
A spirit who is truly now free.

O merciful God, so full of mercy,
Comfort is found in remembering Your love!

Lord God, you bless the dying and sooth the suffering;
Somehow, we are dear to You, even in death.
I continue to be amazed by Your Love and Mercy,
Even in death.
