Pete and Mary Straight
Warren F. Kenney
Fare thee well beloved Mary and Pete,
Oh, how we mourn your loss,
The courage we need to bear your deaths;
Is only available at the cross.
There our precious Savior died
Shedding His blood for you and me;
That blood cleansed your souls
So whiter than snow they could be.
Into our Savior’s presence you have gone,
Your gain is our loss;
One day we shall meet again
If we, too, travel the way of the cross.
We’ll miss your presence here
As we dream of what might have been,
But we wouldn’t want to call you back
To this lowland of suffering and sin.
We look forward to seeing you
Upon Heaven’s golden street;
For now we live in gratitude
For a wonderful Christian Couple
We knew as Mary and Pete.
