Death beckoned our student with outstretched hand - by Anonymous ("Gambia Student Demonstration")

 

Death beckoned our student with outstretched hand

And whispered softly of an unknown land,

But they were not afraid to go

For though the path they did not know

they took death's hand without a fear

For God who safely brought them here

Had promised He would lead the way

Into eternity's bright day.

 

For none of us need go alone

Into the valley that is unknown,

But, guided by our Father's hand

We journey to the promised land.
