A Memorial Service
By David Smith March 10, 2010
A Memorial Service, grief fills the place;
Emotional strain in voice and in face;
Loss of loved ones;
The vacuum is fresh.
Words of comfort; and grief would mesh.
The candles were lit; the memories flashed;
Words were spoken and tears were splashed.
Words of little comfort; to only believe;
The Words of the LORD; a relationship to conceive;
To be born again; to have Christ in the heart;
The author and finisher as we do our part.
Only believe, the works will follow;
To grow in faith is more than being hollow.
Salvation by faith; to be accepted as his own;
Then its obedience, His seed is sown.
You can’t work your way to the Kingdom of God
It is a free gift; on His word we applaud.
Words are of little comfort to an unbeliever’s ear
Christ is the way; eternal life without fear.
