In Loving Memory of a Dear Friend
by Gloria Nabors
A glorious sunrise lights the sky
Sending its radiant beams on high.
All nature wakes in bright array
To greet God’s most victorious day.
Up from the depths of deep despair
From sin, from shame, from hopeless fear.
Christ leads the lost to heights sublime
Healing their wounds with peace divine.
Today, the burdened heart can find
Release from care, true peace of mind.
In place of misery, sin and strife
Christ offers all—Eternal Life.
