Strength comes from Family and God


Open Heart

Amazingly I’m not afraid

The room is cold and bright

The table hard where I am laid

All shaved I’m quite a sight.

 

They are putting me out

Everything goes black

There’s nothing no doubt

Nothing all dark.

 

Someone rubs my arm

You made it Dad

Back safe from harm

Thank you Lord. I’m so glad.

 

There’s a lot of pain

But I’m going to make it.

I can feel the gain

My family’s love. I’ll take it.

 

Thank You Jesus for faith.

Thank You Jesus for hope

Thank you Jesus for love

Thank you Jesus for family.
