So Many Voices by Raymond A. Foss

In the sanctuary gathered
hearts as one
thinking of your passing
and the work you had done
living the scriptures
love in your heart
guiding your journey
here in this life

So many voices
rising to speak
in deep pain yet joyful
for you are at peace
released of your body
entering in
the courts of our savior
now in paradise

A cloud of witnesses
speaking as one
the love you shared with each one
and with all those in need
a life in service
walking with God
lives touched by your grace
wife, mother, and friend
