I hear the rasp of failing breath
The raling sound before one’s death
It fills the silence of each room
Predicting life’s eternal gloom.
Be not afraid, time soon will tell
That God has other plans as well
So simple and with much more ease
In passing over if you’ll please.
He will not fail, He always cares
He comprehends each one’s affairs
Remember Him, He loves us all
He’ll pick us up as each one falls !
