A Blessing For The Heroes/Warriors of Covid-19



 (note: Although the poet wrote 
'don't despair if you must face them all alone'
I think it meant when we have no other person at our side.
Because with God we never face anything alone!)

 
2 Corinthians 2:14
But thanks be to God, 
who always leads us triumphantly 
as captives in Christ and through us 
spreads everywhere the fragrance 
of the knowledge of Him.


God bless you as we pray our way through days we will not miss
(Except in ways we never gave enough kind praise, till this)
God bless you as we make the best of what is not the worst
(Unless we turn our backs on Him, in bitterness immersed)
God bless you as we learn to trust more than we had before
And come to know in spite of woe His grace is always more
God bless you in the second miles nobody keeps count of
Proving on knees, highways, halls, aisles, the greatest of these, Love
God bless you as we weather, all together, day by day
The trouble that, while it is passing, teaches us to pray
God bless you as we weather all together, push and shove,
The trouble that, while it is testing, teaches us to love
