Loss And Gain

Sometimes we feel as good as dead

Staring at the wall

The spirit’s gone – dull in my head

We have reached the end of all

No future do we see ahead

No energy inside

Sitting all alone in dread

Better if we died


Jesus met the funeral bier

Coming along the road

Then he saw a mother’s tear

Her heart a heavy load

Do not cry he said to her

Young man I tell thee rise

The young man sat up straight away

Life was in his eyes


We need the Holy Spirit’s touch

To raise us from our chains

To fill our lives with energy

This world so cruelly drains

The Lord is here to meet again

The death march of our days

Rise up he says the road is here

Let us be on our way
