Mourning Hearts
By now another grievous day has gone,
Oh, thoughts, sleep well until the dawn.
When morning comes may we look ahead,
Having trust, and not be sad.
Oh Lord, grant us strength and inner peace,
Looking to Thee so that our pain will ease.
This evening, before we sleep and rest,
Let us realize we’re here only a guest.
Our Savior and our God, please set us free
From this earthly anguish so that we may clearly see
Following You in heaven we will be.
