Is Everything Sad Going to Come Untrue?

rthbty“Gandalf! I thought you were dead! But then I thought I was dead myself. Is everything sad going to come untrue? What’s happened to the world?”  A great Shadow has departed,” said Gandalf, and then he laughed and the sound was like music, or like water in a parched land; and as he listened the thought came to Sam that he had not heard laughter, the pure sound of merriment, for days upon days without count.” J.R.R. Tolkien

Everything that is broken

Everything that is scarred

Everyone who has been wounded

All that has been marred

It will all be undone. It will all be undone.

 

Every tear-stained cheek of a child

Every sore on waylaid feet

Every time fights destroyed the family

Every wakeful night of sleep

It will all vanish. It will all vanish.

 

Every broken heart of anguish

Every sorrowful goodbye

Every splintered bone and sick man

Every dark cloud in the sky

It will all be made right. It will all be made right.

 

Every peace treaty gone bad

Every stray bullet that pierced the lowly

Every aborted child’s future

All that is dead and unholy

It will all be restored. It will all be restored.

 

bgfbfEvery soldier that left to defend pride

Every funeral that was too soon

Every minister’s cry for his people

All threats of nuclear doom

It will all be done. It will all be done.

 

Every celestial disturbance on the earth

Every hurricane, tornado, mudslide

Every shot of heroin and cocaine

Every lingering sense of sin that abides

It will all die forever. It will all die forever.

 

Every hope dashed against the rocks

Every promise that was broke

Every unfulfilled desire that lingers

Every cruel fist and stroke

It will all be banished. It will all be banished.

 

gfbfEvery last drop of poison

Every animus cancer cell

Everything that robbed you of your heaven

All that led to the pits of hell

It will all cease to reign. It will all cease to reign.

 

Every callous word spoken

Every attitude gone wrong

Everything that diminishes man and woman

Every bad portrait, video, and song

It will all be forgotten. It will all be forgotten.

 

Every philosophy that leads to death

Every religion that damns and ensnares

Every method that fails to work

Everything that leaves humanity bare

It will all lose its shine. It will all lose its shine.

 

1922362_10201558996516806_1379901703_nEverything that cut to the core

Every problem that split the body of Christ asunder

Every controversy that led to dishonor

Every time of perilous, peaceless thunder

It will never be again. It will never be again.

 

Everything that was stolen

Every time we did not truly live

Every opportunity we wasted

Every moment we took and did not give

It will all be resurrected. It will all be resurrected.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. (Rev. 21:4)”
