A face so full of sorrow

As it’s soaked with many tears;

A soul without much hope

Merely existing throughout the years.

Not knowing love and comfort

Or having seen his father’s face;

Not feeling his deep love

Or his mother’s warm embrace.

If we never trust in God

We are orphans through and through;

As He’s our Father in heaven

Who created me and you.

As we ask for His forgiveness

And be reconciled to Him;

His heart gently adopts us

As we have eternal life within.

(C) P.B. 2005

“…for He dwells with you and will be in you.  I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:17-18
