“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”Revelation 21:4
A long-time listener to HAVEN Today phoned in to inquire about the name of a Haven Quartet song. She began to sing the lyrics, “No more pain, no more tears….” She went on to share that just one day earlier her husband of 42 years had passed away after a long and difficult battle with cancer.
During the last few months of his life, she’d been amazed by his courage and strength. He didn’t complain. He’d reflect on all the good God had shown him. He enjoyed listening to Haven on the radio. Every night for the last six weeks, this man asked his wife to sing his favorite The Haven of Rest song. Now she wanted nothing more than to play that particular song at his memorial service, but could not recall the name of it.
After a little investigation, we determined it was “No More Night” (Walter S. Harrah, 1983) she was looking for. We played it over the phone and sent her the CD and sheet music. “No more night, no more pain/ No more tears, never crying again/ And praises to the great “I AM”/ We will live in the light of the risen Lamb.”
Rachel from North Delta, British Columbia, passed this story along to us.
