David St Sidney, IL 61877 The Traveler By James Dillet Freeman , She has put on invisibility. Dear Lord, I cannot see-- But this I know, although the road ascends And passes from my sight, That there will be no night; That You will take her gently by the hand And lead her on Along the road of life that never ends, - And she will find it is not death but dawn. I do not doubt that You are there as here And You will hold her dear. Our life did not begin with birth, It is notof the earth; And this that we call death, it is no more Than the opening and closing of a door-- And in Your house how many rooms must be Beyond this one where we rest momently. Dear Lord, I thank You for the faith that frees, The love that knows it cannot lose its own; The love that, looking through the shadows, sees That You and she and I are ever one!
