Prayers for Fanstory Family
: Fleeting is the Night by Sally Law
The hall clock was nearing midnight;
my heart... leaping with joys,
ecstatic with the thought of her,
a girl among the boys.
Then, shivers and fears engulfed me.
A babe with no life breath?
I thought I would die from sheer grief,
prostrate, mourning her death.
Today, a friend has lost her son,
struck down during his prime.
A hard truth has come upon her
with the passage of time.
The only comfort I offer--
Christ--the Eternal One.
In Him--death has no victory,
sorrows He'll overcome.
The fleeting night shall pass away,
the sun will shine again;
in your heart for eternity,
on this you can depend.
