Father in the Faith

By Jonathan Srock

In loving memory of Rev. Paul C. Jacobs, my grandfather

Long and hard, the battle fought
Time and circumstance are wrought
What life is for, can anyone know?
But you did: steal from the foe

For Satan himself took you from God,
At birth he stole your heart away
But robbed from Satan and given to God
You left a life of love and legacy

Indeed we miss you even now
But look unto that glorious day
When together we will bow
To God forever and with you stay

You have fought the good fight
And finished the course
Every season preached the Light
Kept the faith in God our Source
