You felt God had forsaken you

You felt God had forsaken you
When you were dying on the cross,
And yet, Lord, he was one with you,  
Enduring all your pain and loss,

Just as he is with us, in turn,
For he shares all our suffering,
Until, like you, we quit this life,
To reunite with our great King

Every hour

Every hour, Lord, 
Brings me closer
To the time 
When I will quit this body.

Every second
Brings me closer 
To the time 
When I will see your face.

Every moment
Brings me closer
To the time
When I will hear you speaking.

Every instant
Brings me closer
To the timeless peace 
Of your embrace.
