Where Joy And Sorrow Meet

PA054047

There’s a place of quiet stillness
‘Tween the light and shadows reach
Where the hurting and the hopeless
Seek everlasting peace
Words of men and songs of angels
Whisper comfort bittersweet
Mending grief and life eternal
Where joy and sorrow meet

There is a place where hope remains
In crowns of thorns and crimson stains
And tears that fall on Jesus’ feet
Where joy and sorrow meet

There’s a place the lost surrender
And the weary will retreat
Full of grace and mercy tender
In times of unbelief
For the wounded there is healing
Strength is given to the weak
Broken hearts find love redeeming
Where joy and sorrow meet

There is a place where hope remains
In crowns of thorns and crimson stains
And tears that fall on Jesus’ feet
Where joy and sorrow meet

There’s a place of thirst and hunger
Where the roots of faith grow deep
And there is rain and rolling thunder
When the road is rough and steep
There is hope in desperation
There is victory in defeat
At the cross of restoration
Where joy and sorrow meet

There is a place where hope remains
In crowns of thorns and crimson stains
And tears that fall on Jesus’ feet
Where joy and sorrow meet


(Sung yesterday at the memorial service for a dear friend – I will miss you much, Mrs. N. – you fought hard and long and, in the end, you WON – our loss, your gain! I will see you in that place where joy and sorrow meet.)

  5. Hello Adrienne, so sorry to hear about your friend, and a beautiful poem! I hope your honey's hunting trip was fruitful! The pictures you took were just beautiful, so cozy! We got that snow storm too, but I didn't go out in it much - only on my front porch!! You take good care,
    Marilyn
