Rest

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

The Lord is peace (Judges 6:24; NLT).

God is love (1 John 4:16; NIV).

Return, O my soul, to your rest (Psalm 116:7: ESV).

 

Lord,
After death,
Our souls are absorbed
Into your light,
And peace,
And love,
To rest in union with you,
For evermore.
