WHEN I MUST LEAVE YOU “When I must leave you for a little while, Please do not grieve or shed wild tears And hug your sorrow to you through the years, But start out bravely with a gallant smile And for my sake and in my name Live on and do all things the same, Feed not your loneliness on empty days, But fill each waking hour in useful ways, Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near; And never, never be afraid to die, For I am waiting for you in the Sky!” By: Helen Steiner Rice Let us Pray Gracious heavenly Father, we thank you for sending your Son to atone for the sins of all mankind, as we have looked back at the past year we praise you for the many ways in which you provide for us, and for the blessings that you work through each of us to provide for our friends and neighbors. Help us to be your mouthpiece in bringing others to trust in the resurrection of your Son so that we can all be comforted with the eternal life that he offers to all the world and won for all those who trust in him. In your name we pray – Amen.
