“The Feast”
By Rob Weddle

I know there’s a Heaven beyond the sky
Above this orange and pink sunrise
Beyond these dark and ugly days
Above the clouds, above the haze

Past the sun and the tethered fray
Someplace outside the Milky Way
Life has digressed from mere stress to survival
Somewhere in my spirit I need a revival

This I know, that pain is a beast
It’ll take all of me to make the feast

Thank God for the ones who root for me
Thank God for those who laugh with me
It’ll take all the love of Heaven and Earth
To help me endure the curse of my birth

Shatters, it does, every joy you can know
Cackles, it does, as it watches you grow
Knowing that death has its way in the end
Yet I know what’s waiting for me ’round the bend

This I know, depression’s a beast
Yet it cannot stop me from making the feast

Jesus, my Savior, my Friend and my God
Help me to walk faithfully on this sod
Let me bless those who would seek my defeat
Help me find shade in the blistering heat

To Jesus, my Lord, I have given my heart
Despite agony I shall never depart
My whole life is Yours, this I decree
‘Till death flies me home and at last I am free

Pain is a monster, depression a beast
Yet they shall not stop me from making the feast
