From far away, we got the call,

Alarming news she had to share;

Intent, I listened from the hall.

 

Over our home was cast a pall

Of fear for him for us to wear;

From far away, we got the call.

 

Worry enclosed us in his thrall,

Healing lay we knew not where;

Intent, I listened from the hall.

 

For months it seemed like a wall

As we offered many a prayer;

From far away, we got the call.

 

We grew to have no hope at all,

Knew affliction, tasted despair.

Intent, I listened from the hall,

 

Phone ringing anew; we felt tall,

Superb news soaring in the air.

From far away, we got the call;

Intent, I listened from the hall.
