“A Shortened Life”
In memory of Christian Crowell (5-years old)
As I would go to church on Sunday, Amazing Grace they sung
My body riddled with disease ever since I was young
The doctors tried their best for me with medicine I tried to cope
My mum and dad would speak with me to try and give me hope
As I prayed with my family, with tears I would cry
Holding their hands firmly not knowing if I would die
They prayed and prayed as they trusted God, but all to no avail
Gazing upon my little body which was looking very frail
I was determined though I wouldn’t quit, I had so much to give
For my mum, dad and siblings, I so much wanted to live
But my body was feeling weaker now, each and every day
All I could do was hope in God and to trust Him when I pray
As I looked into my parents eyes, despair is what I saw
They took my hand and held me close as the pain in me would gnaw
As I listen to a Christian song my hand I have to raise
Thinking of God whom I’ll meet soon who forever I will praise
(Christian Crowell, raising his hand in praise)
Struggling hard to stay alive with each and every breath
I was fighting hard to stay away; from the thing that we call death
But just at that, as I closed my eyes the light was ever so bright
As I entered into the Heavenly realm O’ what a beautiful sight
As I got closer I saw an image, it was Jesus on His throne
I knew now that I could let go never to be alone
As I hugged my mum and dad that day, my body became so still
They knew that I had passed away; they knew this was God’s will
I was only five when I died that day; we knew that God knows best
My body is no longer in pain; I’ve gone to my Heavenly rest.
