Death Defied

by Angela M. Baker-Bridge  
12/08/2007 / Miracles

From afar, now round your bed
Reminiscing of days gone by
Each remembering a different tale
Buried deep in heart and head

Faced with frailty instead of power
We know not who you are
Only who you used to be
Before this painful hour

We laugh, cry, in silence wait
Whispering in your room
Wondering if you really know
How perilous your fate

Head of silver, skin now pale
Limbs weakened by your pain
We listen as the experts tell
They fear their ways may fail

Gathering round we all pray
Anointing you with oil
God the Father isn't through
And He will have the final say

Speaking life, singing praise
Reading from His Word
Surrounding you with our love
Planning for future days

We know each life shall die
God's will we must accept
And feel it's not yet your time
So now from death please fly

Hope sustained will life renew
Healing rivers still flow
Standing on His promises
This now we claim for you

Daddy as they wheel you out
We won't bid final goodbyes
But plan our celebration tonight
As others will all, be surprised

From death, we're snatching you away
As often, you saved our lives
We love you with all our hearts
And thank God you're ours today
