This is not a religious poem for funerals, this is spiritual poem to use for a funeral! This is not a religious poem for the deceased, this is a memorial poem for the living!
Yes, this is a poem for the living! Jesus said, that whosoever believes in Him will live even though they die! (John 11:25). Do you believe this? If you believe this then we should rejoice instead of mourn when our loved one passes away. Yes, they are in the Lords hands. Their burdens have been released! Praise God for that!
For those who know the Lord we should rejoice that our loved one is with Him. Their burdens are gone and they are now with the Lord! Yes, weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning! We may mourn a little while, but our grief should turn into joy when we think about what Jesus said.
If you are mourning the lost of a loved one, I personally would like to offer my sincere condolences to you. I pray the Lord comforts your heart and gives you strength and courage to rejoice soon! I also pray that this poem can add comfort to your heart.
