What More Can we Do when Death is very Near?
What More Could Have Been Done With Death Near?
What could you have done when death is near ,
When someone you love on his death bed lay?
Did you do all that you knew to do then to do
To keep them alive and happy with you today?
In youth did you teach them of The Loving Lord,
Did you speak of His Grace And Mighty Power,
Did you tell them of His soon return back to earth?
Of that return some unknown day and unknown hour.
Do you have regrets of many words and action,
Do you sorrow for many things you left undone,
And do you feel you'll soon be as never before
By yourself on earth and so sad and all alone?
This old earthly world is filled with many regrets,
Too late now for time just keeps marching on.
You think of the one that you are losing now
To your sorrow any sad moment he may be gone.
When your loved one is so very near to leaving,
And you know each breath may be their very last,
It's then your mind may begin to fail or function,
As our memories are flooding us from the past.
What more could we have done to be prepared
For the grief that is now filling our aching heart ?
The Lord and His written Word is still true today
And Heaven is the one place where we never part.
When every prayer has been sent to Jesus above,
What more now can we do when death is so near?
We go to our loved one ,then holding his hand
We should whisper softly , "I love you", in his ear.
When all things are forgiven we need not fear,
Our God is our Father , caretaker and best friend.
He will be with us in Heaven forever and ever,
We know Heaven is the great journey's end !
