"A Mighty Fortress 'for' our God"...Ode to a Hero





 To have known beauty and greatness, is a gift,
a blessing beyond measure. 
To have shared trials and tears, 
laughter and wisdom, 
joy and prayers is indeed a rare treasure.

Thank you God, for these moments and memories
of a passion so pure and so bold;
Kindled of a sojourner who traveled far with the light,
insisting God's love be told.

 Inconceivable the loss of one held so dear,
Incomprehensible and yet, your will?
Sorrows seem to drown us, humanity cries,
but God reigns in heaven still.
Yes, God reigns in heaven still.

Comfort those I love who walk through the fire,
Cradle them ever so tenderly tonight.
May they know the love and admiration their lives inspire 
and glimpse the impact of foundations laid beyond human sight.
Yes, glimpse the impact of foundations laid beyond human sight.

"A mighty fortress 'for' our God, a bulwark never failing..."
the life-song of a hero sung strong and low,
wounded and lost souls availing.
Yes, wounded, lost souls availing.
