Amariah’s earthly life,
Had only just begun,
Two whole years,
And eight short months,
Till her time on earth was done.
But now she’s gone to heaven above,
Alive in Christ the Son.
Only yesterday she breathed,
Her last and final breath,
Her sweet young life only dawning,
Now ‘tis gone from sight.
Though is seems like darkest night,
To sad and grieving hearts,
Through tearful eyes, and aching minds,
Reality imparts the truth.
Even a rosebud, when cut to soon,
Transported far from its native bower,
When put in water, the water of life,
Still fully opens…
Blooming all despite.
So the life of Amariah,
Though on earth her time is done,
For Amariah, life has really just begun!
Now she blooms in fairer halls,
Yea, even in the bosom of the LORD,
The Father of all!
So though on earth,
Her life was only at its dawn,
And now though gone,
Night has not fallen,
Though in grief it seem that way.
But when the Son bursts o’er the new world,
In the joy of Christ,
Then we will see,
In the radiant light of eternity,
Far fairer, far purer,
At the glorious sunrise of eternal life.
In loving memory of dear, dear Amariah.
Not unto us O LORD,
But to Your name,
May all the glory be!
