|From Tragedy to Triumph
|From tragedy to triumph,
What glory in the cross!
That Jesus Christ the Lamb of God,
Sustains us in our loss.
Though loved ones befall trials,
And death itself knocks too
abiding in the love of God,
He gives us grace anew.
Not victims of our circumstances,
But victors in the fray!
We stand triumphant with our Lord,
Who guides us all the way.
Though tears may fall so freely,
And voice seems weak in song,
Within our breast are wells of joy,
Our Lord doth make us strong!
Take hope my friends and ponder,
Though our son be laid to rest;
His body's but a temple,
His spirt's with the Blest!
