We know not when we will be called on
We know not the hour or day
When one so close is now the one that is gone and left us astray
As we witness such a sacrifice without even a thought
As an unknown lesson soon will be taught
One’s life must not be centered on what should have been
But that our best foot was set forward as we went all in
Death does not come easy but moves swift with might
God’s fair plan sometimes escapes beyond the dimmest of light
Sacrifice is not for the weak because it was designed for the strong
In our greatest moments of effort God says we belong.
Pray for those who have gone to that heavenly afterlife as they
Watch over us to see how we make that next sacrifice
