Death comes daily. . .

Today I meet a friend for whom death lurks

An unwelcome intruder in more ways than one

Yet this friend is calm

This friend seems all ready

Grace of God truly

And only one thing remains to be done

To welcome this friend into the family of God

Through baptism and repentance

My prayer is always

Make this friend desire

To be made a child of God

Let it be done

In accordance with Your will, dear Lord

And surely it is to have the gift of salvation

Freely accepted

Joyfully embraced

With gratitude 

And in thanksgiving
