( By Jan Phillips )
I was so depressed when I went to bed;
I cried “Dear Lord take me home instead”.
I prayed and prayed through the darkest night,
I didn’t want to see the morning’s light.
The Lord came down from Heaven above,
and folded me in His arms with love.
I felt His robes of softest cloth;
They floated around me like the wings of a moth.
I grabbed His robes and held on tight;
I was leaving with my life’s bright light!
In a voice which had no sound,
He said “My child you are still earth bound.
It’s not your time to go just yet;
You still owe me some earthly debt.
Your time won’t come for many years;
And during those, you will shed some tears.
Your life’s road will be up and down;
But remember, I’ll always be around.
I’ll be there for you through thick and thin;
Just ask my forgiveness when you sin.”
I went to sleep knowing I’d been blessed,
By a visit from my Lord as you may have guessed.
My life since then has been worry free;
Because I have more faith in the Lord, you see!
