A Day At an Assembly Like No Other!
 
A day at an assembly, much like many others;
All joyfully gathered together with our dear sisters and brothers.
Everyone prepared, anticipating the day;
Then the brother announces, "Our program is about to get underway."

hghghghghg

 

Weeks, even months, we've prepared in advance;
Looking forward to this day, to get our chance.
To visit, to sing, and all pray together;
To worship our God, Jehovah, to welcome new ones and to love one another.

hghghghghg

So, very much, that I cannot possibly relate;
We all look forward to this day, and would never dream of being late.
And, here we are all together at last;
But, once here, the days go by much too fast.

hghghghghg

Today, though, is not just like any other;
Today, we are here, singing, praying and worshiping with our Mother.
Worship Jehovah we have for many a year;
But, for all those years our dear Mother was not with us here.

hghghghghg

Enjoy our assembly days? Of course, we always did;
However, a pain, in our hearts we constantly hid.
For here we had been with all our spiritual sisters and brothers;
But, a longing, was to be here worshiping, also, with our Mother.

hghghghghg

Life had been hard, a real battle for her;
Many stabs, many hurts, many pains she had incurred.
Once truly hurt, though, it is hard to let go;
And seeds of resentment are easy to sew.

hghghghghg

When the bitterness of this world has taken away;
All your strength, your joy, your faith, even your will to pray.
Strips you to your very heart, your soul, your will to go on;
To see happiness again, for you, you feel the day will never again dawn.

hghghghghg

Are there truly real miracles for us today?
"Absolutely no!" many would say.
But, they are not here seeing, what I am seeing;
And they are not here, hearing what I am hearing.

hghghghghg

I see mom's eyes full of joy and laughter within;
I see sunshine and hope where so much pain had been.
Yes, hard work it did take, faith and many nights in prayer;
And, in this, many others too have had a great share.

hghghghghg

What is this, that I am with my own ears hearing?
What is this sound, that to my heart, is so endearing?
I can sing no more, for I am all choked up;
My eyes are full of tears as I dare to look up.

hghghghghg

Tears, you say?  Whatever could be wrong?
A moment ago you were joyfully singing along.
I am praying to Jehovah, giving silent "Thanks" in prayer;
And my tears are tears of joy, with which nothing could ever compare.

hghghghghg

So Beautiful a sound, so Full of Life and Spirit;
Oh God! It's my Mother joyfully singing to Jehovah, and I am alive to hear it.
"Pray to Jehovah Each Day" is the song we are singing;
And sweetness, in the place of bitterness, is now in my ears ringing.

hghghghghg

How can we ever truly "Thank Jehovah" for this wonderful day!
Or, in anyway, our appreciation genuinely display.
He has, through His love for us, from heaven above;
Brought to my Mother's heart the gifted miracle of Happiness, Joy and Love!

hghghghghg

"An assembly day just like any others," you say?
No!  My dear sisters and loving brothers ... no way.
Compared to this day, there is no other;
For today at last, we are here worshiping, praying, singing to Jehovah our God, with our happy and loving dear Mother!
