Lord, I pray for the aged who are widowed
And are alone for the first time in years;
Please comfort them, be with them,
and dry their lonely tears.
Help them experience peace
In the days they have left to go;
Please Lord, don’t allow them to
Live their days in woe;
And for anyone faced with earthly parting,
Whether they go first or last,
Remind them that days on earth
Always seem to go by too fast.
But in Heaven, time is forever;
and in heaven they’ll meet once more;
One will knock on the doorpost
And the other will answer the door.
In Christ’s Holy name I pray. Amen
