A Prayer for Understanding
As we now gather near
To mourn the one we love
Bestow your understanding here
Your peace from up above
Please heal our hearts
It hurts so much
That we must say goodbye!
Support us through these dark, sad, hours
As we remember, grieve, and cry
Although we cannot understand
We pray we’ll someday know
Why you took (Loved One’s Name) away from us
Alt. Verse: for a longer name: Why you took (Loved One’s Name) from us
Back to your heavenly home
Give us your strength
And help us through
The days and years to come
May sweet mem’ries warm our hearts and minds
Like golden rays of sun
Please let (Loved One’s Name) stay close nearby
To watch over us we plead
A guardian angel’s support from heaven
Whenever we have need
Surround us with Your love and hope
And console us in our grief
May bitter sorrow be lessened ‘til
It becomes accepting peace
And may we be reunited once more
Someday…Never again to part
With (Loved One’s Name), who we hold so very dear
And grieve now in our hearts
