Lord, Let My End Come Quietly.


Lord, let my end come quietly
May my spirit soar aloft
On the breezes of the ocean
That feels so pure and soft.

Lord, let my end come joyfully
So my spirit still will sing
Your praises as You beckon me
To fly up on heaven’s wings.

Lord, let my end come gently
As You lift me in Your arms
May my family claim Eternity
With freedom from all harm.

Lord, let the memory of me
Be tempered with the thought
That I loved You in spite of
Not doing all I ought.

Lord, let my end be a welcome
Into the home of God
I long to hear the words,’ Well done
You were true to the heart of God’.

Thank you Marja,

I love Muttonbird Hill and I climb it as often as I can but it is so very steep. My mind seems to set free to write as I watch the ocean. It's my favourite place in the whole world,
Love,
Wyn
