Loud was the voice that made us hear,
The news of his sudden passing,
Shouting to us that present life,
Will not be forever lasting.
Sweet was the comfort understood:
His heart was prepared and ready.
Firm were God's hands which held us up,
Embraced us and kept us steady.
Soft is the voice that cautions now,
Of death that comes without warning.
Many have heard and fled to Christ,
But many are still ignoring.
Safe is the soul that heeds the call
Of God while he gives us hearing.
That soul can face uncertain days,
Face the darkness without fearing.
