Lord of Angels

by Glenn Fairman11/1/16

Lord of Angels hear my cry
Let my love sleep safe tonight
Calm the pain that fills her eyes
Sweetest dreams till morning light

Give her strength to fight this war
Grant her grace as she endures
Allow old hearts to recollect
Those blessings that we might forget

But if the way becomes too steep
Then cling to Him whose strength is deep
We’ll kneel beside you, safe and warm
Beloved soul whom we adore

And death will not gain victory
Far greater things He hath for thee
When eyes are closed to suffering
They open wide to see our King

Lord of Angels, Hear my cry
Let her rest and dream this night
Take this sorrow from her eyes
Sweetest dreams till Morning light

G.F. 11/1/16

    I hope your pray is answered. I found the way it rhymed with the child’s prayer, “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep” touching. All Christians are, in the end, children of God.

    I think of my Mom. In this late stage of Alzheimers she is in, there is not much recognition left in her eyes; I can no longer draw her attention to any particular thing. She still talks, but it is mostly incoherent babbling; she answers questions she cannot comprehend, with words and noises I cannot understand. But she still smiles, and that is a blessing, because so many others in the same condition are unhappy. I tell her that someday soon she will wake up to see her Savior, with full comprehension, full recognition, and full joy. But will she speak? Will we speak when our time comes? I wonder if in awe, we will be so overcome that our speech will, at least at first, leave us?

    Ties of the heart between mothers and daughters transcend the physical senses. She may speak to your heart after all once she is released from her limitations. What a comfort to know she will be joining all the others in that state of unspeakable bliss.
