The Promise

by Susan Louise Gabriel

Jesus hold me close to You
and never let me stray from view.
I know that I will always be
the safest if You're here with me.

Jesus also hold my friends
and keep them with you, even when
they are no longer on this sphere
'cause death took them away from here.

Remind me when I'm near to You,
my friends and family are here, too.
They're closely held, right by Your side.
Through You, our joy is multiplied.

Love infuses one another,
spirits joined through You, our Brother. 
Soon, again, I'll see their faces,
as we're wrapped in warm embraces.
