Pass On

November 22, 2022

Ecclesiates 12:5b-7

…For man goes to his eternal home,

And the mourners go about the streets.

6 Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed,

Or the golden bowl is broken,

Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain,

Or the wheel broken at the well.

7 Then the dust will return to the earth as it was,

And the spirit will return to God who gave it.

                              Pass On

Our earthly lives are like the leaves of fall,

In their spring they stood strong and tall,

They’ve changed color as the season passed,

But the difference they made is what will last.

They brought life and joy to those around,

Now their voice is but a distant sound,

Yet their memories etched their mark.

Those memories we now hold in our heart.

Our tears water the ground where the body lay,

But their spirit is released into another day.

No more pain and sorrow in this body now,

No more fields in this earth to plow.

No longer will they come to us in this earthly plain,

We pray that what we count as loss they will find as gain.

Their memories and their love live on for us to share,

Find your comfort now in our Father’s mercy and care.
