Angels to Beckon Him

There let the way appear,
Steps unto heav'n;
All that thou sendest me,
In mercy giv'n;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God to thee,
Nearer, my God to thee,
Nearer to thee!

"Nearer, My God to Thee"
Music Atr. to Lowell Mason & Text by Sarah F. Adams

I heard this song at Church several weeks ago. 

And I sobbed.

I sobbed as I thought of my Shtev having the way appear to him, those steps into heaven.

I sobbed as I thought of those angels beckoning him, to leave this world behind for a greater one and a greater work.

I sobbed as I thought of him turning back to see all he was temporarily leaving behind and the wake of grief his absence would create.

I sobbed as I thought of him continuing to take each step closer to his Heavenly Home because that is what he knew the Lord wanted him to do.  

And I sobbed as I ached to be nearer to him myself.
