Strength to the troubled heart, we come
with anxious and bewildered minds,
striving to reach for meaning here:
your peace is what we ache to find.
Joy of the troubled heart, we come
good memories are ours today,
of friendship given and received,
of family care along life's way.
Friend of the lonely heart, we come;
the void that's left is hard to fill;
strong love stays with your grieving ones,
sure touch of grace, death's fears to still.
Sun of the rising heart, we come,
Christ's empty tomb, new courage gives,
for we are sure, embraced and safe
within your love, our loved one lives.
