Hold this thought when far away
From those you love who cannot stay:
One was two, then three, then four.
They saw you through.
They knew you more.
Alleluia. Alleluia,

Hold this thought when far away
From those you love for whom you pray:
Five or six may pick up sticks,
They know not what they do.
But seven or eight who met you late
Came with you as you grew.
Alleluia. Alleluia.

Hold this thought when far away
From those you miss each passing day:
Time will line the nine or ten
Who sign up for each test.
Yet those who love can reach out now
To comfort all the rest.
Alleluia. Alleluia.
Hold on. Hold on.

Jean Belmont Ford
