I was in a meeting this morning and one of my brothers informed us that Pastor Shy was killed in an accident last evening.
A part of us is gone today.
He left this world in his own way.
He left this world a better place;
He's gone into the arms of Grace!
A part of us is gone today,
but only in the flesh.
For in our hearts, in many ways,
he yet would sure enmesh!
We listen to his sermons yet,
we feel his firm embrace;
we cannot lose his influence
or the smile on his face!
"Brother Mike, we miss you,
but we will see you later!
Pastor Shy, we miss you,
but you have gained the greater!
We know that we will carry on-
you showed to us the way-
then there, together, we shall fete
the Truth, the Life, the Way!"
A part of us is gone today;
yet he's still here in such a way
that all of our lives he will grace
as we press on unto That Place!
But it still hurts. And I am sure that each of you who has lost such a beloved member of your heart knows how to pray for us.
Thank you for your prayers.
