Passing through the valley of weeping

(John MacDuff, "A Book for the Bereaved")

"Passing through the valley of weeping."
     Psalm 84:6

Child of God! There is not one drop of wrath
in the troublous cup you are now drinking!
He took all that was bitter out of it, and left
it a cup of love! God deals tenderly, wisely,
and lovingly with His children.

In a little while the night of weeping will be
over, and a gentle hand in a tearless world
will dry up the very source of tears! Every
day is bringing you nearer that blissful reality
--nearer to Him who is now standing with the
hoarded treasures of eternity in His hand, and
the hoarded love of eternity in His heart!

How will one brief moment there, banish all the
pangs and sorrows of the valley of weeping, to
everlasting oblivion!

"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy
 comes in the morning!" Psalm 30:5

"He will wipe all tears from their eyes--and there
 will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain!
 These things of the past are gone forever!"
    Revelation 21:4
