The Empty Chair

 

An empty chair beside his bed

An old man lay alone

He thought of all that he had done

And how he could atone

 

He did not know the words to use

To speak to God above

A Priest once said you only need

To speak your words with love

 

Place a chair beside your bed

And Christ will sit with you

Never fear, He knows your truth

He knows just what to do

 

Every night the man did try

To speak to Him above

He spoke his truths and his woes

He spoke it all with love

 

The chair beside him spoke one night

And asked if it was time

Come with me and be at peace

Together we will climb

 

To heights untold where angles sing

My Fathers waits with pride

Hold my hand and we will fly

The world will have to bide

 

The sun did rise to greet the day

And our hero breathed his last

Content of heart and smiling lips

He took the hand as asked
