Surprised by grace

My heart was trapped by grief I was too frail

My mind was black I saw no way ahead

My mind was numb I felt I should be dead

I sat with my despair, how hard I failed.

I saw the tunnel black inside my head

The track was going downwards yard by yard

I felt so hopeless, why was I not spared?

The avenues of grief I overtrod

Then I saw and felt a golden light

Caress me with its fire its warmth ity grace

Strong and kind its beauty I embraced

And unexpected was this loving sight

I knew that this was real, so I have learned

That bitter pain and terror has an end

If like patient mourners we attend

Then accept the love we have not earned
