Death Never Gets Any Easier

Death Never Gets Any Easier

Death never gets any easier 
It has its finality
And grief comes to visit once again
To the depth of our soul's degree
And devastated though we are
God's grace comes with ministering power
Praise God for our Resurrection and our Life
Our greatest solace in this hour

The Lord our Shepherd comforts such
With His physician healing balm
To bring us peace during the departure of
Our dearest and loving one
As grace permeates our innermost being
And we catch the life in breath
So thankful to Christ for our living hope
Praise God there's life after death!

Death never gets any easier
But one day it shall be no more
When our Resurrected bodies head for Heaven
Greeting those who've gone on before
And then that glad reunion day
When our meeting place shall be bliss
And welcomed into the arms of loved ones
Through the blessing of Christ's sacrifice !

Hallelujah what a Saviour!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
