“Mentions of Mortality”
Hearken now, divine Savior and please tarry not to answer
Prayers of saints pleading that You remove sin the cancer!
Lord, mend the fractured structure,
Fragments shape to whole and cure
Sicknesses and diseases; let new life blood
Course through aged veins and let love flood.
Spiritual Savior, You’ve redeemed the soul from Hell!
Spiritual Benefactor, of Your greatness come to tell!
Great Physician, Your promises are always kept;
Your words never fail, nor are they left unkept!
Infirm flesh and the mortal kind,
Damaged frames and an old mind.
Temporary vessels to be used wisely,
May have seen before death closely.
Seasons of naievity end like winter,
Fast, almost unnoticeable, now enter
Seasons of acceptance of the reality
That we’re all born to a life of mortality.
Frail bones may tell the story of a life long lived
But not one moment of the past can be relived!
Will it like a story end sadly or happily?
Prone to pass like lightning, nigh silly
How easily a life can be taken away;
Mortal bodies taken out of life’s way!
Oh, decay is in the air;
We say that life is unfair.
O how temporary and soon ending is a human life,
Whether by natural cause, gun, pill, illness, or knife!
Lord, if You are not a life’s strength
Then it shall be lesser, shorter length.
God if You do not bless a person
Then they’ll have so little won!
Be the strength and life of the sick and weak!
Be the greatest treasure that they’ll ever seek!
All the glory belongs to You alone, Lord!
Inerrant and infallible is Your living Word!
