A Race Well Run

A Race Well Run

Your race is run
The finish has come
You have gone to the Father
So He can say “Well done,
My good and faithful son.”

You have crossed the line
Marked “start-finish”
With a flourish and grace
We can only pray to match

Your earthly race has ended,
But at the finish
You begin your eternal beginnings
Living amongst the Son in heaven

As Jesus consoles us
Over your death
May He be hugging you
Tight to His chest
Saying, “Well done, my son.”

For Pastor Doug Jeffrey though he hasn’t passed yet, he is in the home stretch with his eyes on the finish line.
