The Coming Storm

When we were kids and the skies would change, we’d get contrary views.

While Mom would scream our names to come, our dad would take a snooze.

Mom’s fear encircled all her words, for she wanted us safe and sound,

And dad, well – he just was not afraid, so we knew where he’d be found.

Now in this wicked world of ours, where the storm clouds are starting to gather,

We’re grateful that Mom and Dad are safe in Christ, for that is all that matters.

Mom’s name is known in heaven above and God called her to his side,

And Dad is resting in the faith God gave that caused him to abide.

The storm that’s coming sounds an alarm that only the Christian can hear.

Mom and Dad’s kids have that hearing aid for the coming storm that’s near.
