"Up to the hill of Calvary
My Savior went courageously
and there he bled and died for me
Hallelujah for the cross

And on that day the world was changed
A final, perfect lamb was slain
Let earth and heaven now proclaim
Hallelujah for the cross

[Chorus:]
Hallelujah for the war He fought
Love has won, death has lost
Hallelujah for the souls He bought
Hallelujah for the cross

What good I’ve done could never save
My debt too great for deeds to pay
But God, my Savior, made a way
Hallelujah for the cross

A slave to sin, my life was bound
But all my chains fell to the ground
When Jesus’ blood came flowing down
Hallelujah for the cross

[Chorus]

Hallelujah, hallelujah
And when I breathe my final breath
I’ll have no need to fear that rest
This hope will guide me into death
Hallelujah for the cross

[Chorus x2]

Hallelujah for the cross
Hallelujah for the cross"

"I am the Earth.
Mother of them all.
I'm getting hotter and hotter each day,
I just want to lay and rest.
Let me rest,
I'm dying.

My babies are dying,
The ice is melting.
The sun is burning my skin,
My babies,
My life

You cruel people,
You choke me to death.
Your chemicals are killing
What I have tried to raise.
How is life supposed to carry on...
If my people destroy what
Makes us live
And breathe?

My poor trees!
Just think and feel how they feel.
Why are you putting rubbish on my skin?
STOP...
OH STOP it now!

You're giving me disease,
And it's burning to my core.
Get in my mind, come on,
Look deep down and find
My heart is slowly stopping.
You're killing me,
You murderer."

""Native American Prayer"

I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn."

"The rich man lived in luxury surrounded by his door
He always had the very best that money could afford
He left this world not caring about his resting place
He laid his eyes toward Heaven, but it was too late

Give me one drop of water, the rich man cried from Hell
One drop of water, but still no water fell
He always was a selfish man, his heart was filled with greed
Now a little drop of water is all he'll ever need

You can't love gold and silver and love the Savior too
Like the eye of the needing no chance of getting through
So make your reservation before another day
For all your gold and silver will surely pass away

Give me one drop of water, the rich man cried from Hell
One drop of water, but still no water fell
He always was a selfish man, his heart was filled with greed
Now a little drop of water is all he'll ever need

There's one way to Heaven, its by amazing grace
Where everyone is equal no matter creed or race
So have no other Bible, and always put God first
We'll live on milk and honey, and we will never thirst

Give me one drop of water, the rich man cried from Hell
One drop of water, but still no water fell
He always was a selfish man, his heart was filled with greed
Now a little drop of water is all he'll ever need

Now a little drop of water is all he'll ever need"

"I've a home prepared where the saints abide
Over in the glory land
I long to be by my Saviors side
Over in the glory land

Just over in the glory land
I'll join (yes join) the happy angels band
Over in the glory land
Just over in the glory land
There with (yes with) the mighty host I'll stand
Over in the glory land

I'm on my way to those mansions fair
Over in the glory land
There to sing Gods praise and his glory share
Over in the glory land

What a joyful thought that my Lord Ill see
Over in the glory land
And the kindred say there forever I'll be
Over in the glory land

Just over in the glory land
I'll join (yes join) the happy angels band
Over in the glory land
Just over in the glory land
There with (yes with) the mighty host I'll stand
Over in the glory land"

"There were many times when I was young, I saw tears in mamma's eyes
And I didn't know what things it was, that made my mamma cry.
But as the years went by I understood each tear
Mamma cried for her children while she was living here

And she prayed, Lord please save my children, I'm asking you today
Lord, please save my children, don't let them stray away
Just keep your hands upon them, don't let them die in vain
Much more, please save my children, oh this I pray today.

And now the years they've come and gone, since my mamma passed away
But back in my memory, I can hear her everyday
Oh I hear those prayers that she prayed to God, for her children everyday
She was hoping that she just hear me say, "Mamma I got saved."

And she prayed, Lord please save my children, I'm asking you today
Lord, please save my children, don't let them stray away
Just keep your hands upon them, don't let them die in vain
Much more, please save my children, Oh this I pray today.

But Lord, please save my children,
Oh this I pray today"

"I awake each morning to start a new day
But the pain of losing you never goes away.
I go about the things I have to do
And as the hours pass I think again of you.
I want to call you and just hear your voice
Then I remember that I have no choice
For you are not there and now my heart cries
Just to see you again to tell you goodbye
To say Mama I love you and I always will
And hope that much of you, in me you've instilled.
The day that you left I just didn't know
That you were going where I couldn't go.
And now all my memories of you are so dear
But gosh, how I miss you and wish you were here.
Who now can hear me when I need to cry?
It so hard to tell you "Mama goodbye."
Someday I know all will be well
And I'll see you again with stories to tell
Of how you were missed and how we have grown
And how good it is to finally be home.
Until then my memories of you I'll keep near
And I'll pass them on to those who are dear.
I miss you Mama"

This tribute was added by John Wray on 4th December 2014

"My dear sweet heavenly father I come to you today,
with faith and hope I ask, send an angel Mama's way.
I know her time is near and soon you'll take her home,
to stroll across the streets of gold where other angels roam.
It's hard to watch her suffer and slowly fade away,
help me God to understand, give me strength I pray.
She means so much to all of us, forgive me for my fears,
life will never be the same without her presence here.
My mother is my angel, she taught me how to love,
and told me about you lord and heaven up above.
When she crosses over and steps into the light,
tell her that I love her and when the time is right.
Meet me at the pearly gates where every thing's brand new,
we'll walk across God's meadow lands where skies are always blue.
Somewhere beyond the sunset every now and then,
I pray she watches over me until we meet again

""A REAL CHILDHOOD"

I'M GLAD I GREW UP IN THE TIME THAT I DID,
WHEN A KID WAS ALLOWED TO BE JUST A KID.
WE PLAYED BASEBALL, MARBLES AND KICK-THE-CAN,
HOPSCOTCH, JUMP ROPE AND HIDE-AND-CRAWL-IN.
WE CHASED LIGHTENING BUGS DOWN BY THE OLD POND,
ALL THROUGH THE FIELDS AND THE PASTURE BEYOND.

WE PLAYED BASEBALL IN THE FIELD DOWN BACK
WITH AN OLD RUBBER BALL AND A WHITTLED-OUT BAT.
WE COULD ROLL A HOOP, OR PLAY HIDE-AND-GO-SEEK,
OR GO SKINNY-DIPPING DOWN BACK IN THE CREEK.

IN WINTER WE SKATED WHEN THE WEATHER WAS RIGHT,
OR PELTED EACH OTHER IN A SNOWBALL FIGHT.
WE'D ALL SLIDE DOWN THE NEIGHBOR'S STEEP HILL,
OR AN OLD TOBOGGAN THAT WOULD GIVE YOU A THRILL.

IN THE SPRING, WE WENT FISHING WHENEVER WE COULD,
BETWEEN LUGGING WATER AND CHOPPING FIREWOOD.
WE NEVER KNEW THAT TIMES WERE TOUGH,
WE HAD WHAT WE HAD, AND IT WAS ENOUGH.

THE GOOD OLD DAYS HAVE COME AND GONE,
BUT IN MY MEMORIES, THEY STILL LINGER ON.
I'M GLAD I GREW UP IN THE TIME THAT I DID,
WHEN A KID WAS ALLOWED TO BE JUST A KID."

"'Round here we was raised in the church
We worked when we was hurt
And was proud of our dirt
God came first and He still does
Some things will always be just like they was
Life's still good 'round here everyday
Ask anyone, betcha they all say

[Chorus]
That's because we're country kids
How it was is how it is
Yeah, that's the way we all were raised
Reckon some things ain't never gonna change
It's in our blood everywhere we go
From the city streets to them old back roads
No matter how young or old we get
We'll always be country kids

Shellin' butter beans on the porch with Grandma
Learnin' how to cut the grass on the lap of Grandpa
On that old John Deere, Lord the thing still runs
Learned how to bait a hook and how to shoot a gun
Life's still good 'round here everyday
Ask anyone, I betcha they all say

[Chorus]
That's because we're country kids
How it was is how it is
Yeah, that's the way we all were raised
Reckon some things ain't never gonna change
It's in our blood everywhere we go
From the city streets to them old back roads

From New York City to the Georgia pines
From Hollywood to the Bible belt
No ya'll we ain't too hard to find
No we ain't hard to find

That's because we're country kids
How it was is how it is
Yeah, that's the way we all were raised
Reckon some things ain't never gonna change
It's in our blood everywhere we go

Yeah from the moment we're born
Till we're a hundred and six
We'll always be country kids"

"Chasing after that dollar like it’ll slow down my hurry
Settle all my worries when I get it in my wallet
quit dipping’ long enough to own a pair of jeans
That don’t have a ring in the back pocket
Laughing at myself, admitting when I’m wrong
That’s what this gold ol’ boy’s gonna go out workin’ on

[Chorus:]
Workin’ on coming to Jesus, kicking the bottle,
Wrestling with our roots,
Trying to turn off Mama’s tears, and feel up Daddy’s boots
Shutting off our pride, fixing bridges we burned, learning how to live and learn
Keeping our demons down and our trucks up and running
Loving them angels sitting pretty in the middle of ‘em
Fighting with the man in the mirror til we gone
Yeah, that’s what all us good ol’ boys gonna go out workin’ on
Gonna go out workin’ on

Giving more forgiveness, picking battles worth choosing
Little less cussin’ and losin’ my temper and my tools
Dialin’ down my restless, outgrowing my reckless
and my reputation for breaking hearts and rules
Realizin’ what I got what I got before it’s gone
That’s what this good ol boy’s gonna go out
Workin’ on…

[Chorus:]
Workin’ on coming to Jesus, kicking the bottle,
Wrestling with our roots,
Trying to turn off Mama’s tears, and feel up Daddy’s boots
Shutting off our pride, fixing bridges we burned, learning how to live and learn
Keeping our demons down and our trucks up and running
Loving them angels sitting pretty in the middle of ‘em
Fighting with the man in the mirror til’ we gone
Yeah, that’s what all us good ol’ boys gonna go out workin’ on
Gonna go out workin’ on

Owning up to my weakness, keeping it humble but strong
Doin’ the best I can with this flesh and bone

[Chorus:]
Workin’ on coming to Jesus, kicking the bottle,
Wrestling with our roots,
Trying to turn off Mama’s tears, and feel up Daddy’s boots
Shutting off our pride, fixing bridges we burned, learning how to live and learn
Keeping our demons down and our trucks up and running
Loving them angels sitting pretty in the middle of ‘em
Fighting with the man in the mirror til we gone
Yeah, that’s what all us good ol’ boys gonna go out workin’ on
Gonna go out workin’ on"

"Letter To Drug Dealer From Mother Of Young Addict




A Letter To A Drug Dealer.

As you read this letter I want you to know the devastation that you have caused to families. Perhaps you're beyond caring, all you
see is the money you have made, or perhaps you don't have a
conscience at all.

I'm wring this letter to let you know the misery you inflict
to millions of innocent people, people you don't know, the
unheard cry of agony. Ordinary families trying to get by and
do the best for their children. Sons or daughters that you
don't care about. Lives destroyed at your hands. Kids that you
deliberately set out to get them hooked on drugs.

When you're a parent and have children you want the best for
them, you want them to grow up to be happy, independent, and make
their way in the world, to be honest and hard working. What you
can't protect them from is the outside world, Monsters like you,
who roam free to destroy lives.

You look on helplessly as you watch the child you brought into the
world change in front of your eyes, and all you see is deadness
looking back at you, and there's nothing you can do. As you
see their personalities change from a bright, caring and
loving person, a person who has a future into something that
you just don't recognize anymore.

As the family is destroyed because a Monster like you has got another young person hooked on the filth that you make a profit from. You silently scream inside as you watch the child that you reared doing things that you never dreamed was possible in order to pay a Maggot like you so they can sleep. As families of addicts that You Made watch helplessly as the cycle begins all over again the following day and you are dragged into a world you didn't know existed and you pray to God everyday that possibly you will see some change in your son's or daughter's life but it never happens because a Maggot like you has drawn them in a world of evil.

You learn to live in fear as you watch the child that you brought into the world jump as the phone rings and you know that he owes money, and the cycle of evil continues and there's nothing you can do. You're a Monster and there's many more of you out there, and you may feel that nothing can touch you but trust me when I say that your time will come, where justice will prevail, if it's not in this world it will definitely be in the next and there will be no rock for an animal like you to hid, what comes around goes around and for every bit of misery that you have caused to innocent and vulnerable kids out there, it will fall back on you a million times over. I hope when your time comes to leave this earth that God will forgive you, I on the other hand will
never !!!

Mother of 1 of the addicts you made.

"A mother is special, she's more than a friend.
Whenever you need her, she'll give you a hand.
She'll lead you and guide you in all that you do.
Try all that she can just to see you get through.
Good times and bad times, she's there for it all.
Say head up, be proud, and always stand tall.
She'll love you through quarrels and even big fights,
or heart to heart chats on cold lonely nights.
My mother's the greatest that I've ever known,
I think God made my mother like He'd make his own.
A praiser, a helper, an encourager too,
nothing in this world that she wouldn't do.
To help us succeed she does all that she can,
raised a young boy now into a man.
I want to say thank you for all that you do,
please always know mom, that I love you.

"Your kids are growing up now,
trying to do what would make you proud,
it's been almost two months
now,
but yet we still sit here in disbelief,
this isn't possible, it never happened,
the woman who brought us into this world is,
gone, gone forever..
why did you have to leave so soon?
we still need you. we still need our mom.
we will never understand,
there is no reason that will justify,
but we know you are always in our hearts,
and you are always watching over us
we love you mom...

"We had a wonderful mother,
One who never really grew old;
Her smile was made of sunshine,
And her heart was solid gold;
Her eyes were as bright as shining stars,
And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
We had a wonderful mother,
And that' s the way it will always be.
But take heed, because
She's still keeping an eye on all of us,
So let's make sure
She will like what she sees."

"A face that is always on my mind,
A smile I have seen a million times,
Two eyes that would light up the sky at night,
One last battle you could not fight,
The day was long, then night then morn.
I knew that soon you would be gone,
I clasped your hand so warm in mine,
Soon we would be out of time,
To stay with us you fought so hard,
A million pieces went my heart,
Now a photo I look at to see your smile,
I keep your number on my speed dial,
A video I watch to hear your voice,
This I do.... I have no choice.,
But great memories I will always keep with me,
Your love in my heart for eternity,
I never got to say goodbye,
To understand why, I can but try,
Waiting in heaven from this moment on,
'Till God asks you to bring me home.

"f I only had five minutes the day you passed away,
I would have had time to tell you all the things I needed to say.

I never got to tell you how much you mean to me,
Or that you were the best mom, better than any woman could be.

The last time that I talked to you
I wish I would have known.
I would have said I love you,
and kept you on the phone.

If I only had five minutes,
the morning you passed away,
I'd give you one last hug so tight and see your great big smile.
I'd tell you that I don't think I could live without you,
not even for awhile.
I'd kiss your cheek and take your hand and tell you it's okay to go
And tell you that I'll miss you,
more than you'll ever know.

But you were gone so quickly,
One last night in the hotel
Before you even knew it,
you were standing at heavens gate.
Now God has called upon you,
It's time to get your wings.
To leave this life behind you,
And enjoy all of heavens beautiful things.
So wait for me in heaven mom,
Don't let me come alone.
The day the angels come for me,
Please be there to bring me home

"Momma would pray, at night by her bedside
She call out to Jesus, in a voice so sincere
Watch over my children, and show them your mercy
Don't let 'em be alone, in this old world down here

A mother's pray, more precious than diamonds
A mother's pray, more precious than gold
There's nothing on earth that could compare,
I can still see her kneeling there
Thank God for the power, of a mother's prayer

With tears in my eyes, in the darkest of hours
I cried alone, don't take her from me
Since she took my hand, said son I'm ready
Said the sweetest prayer, then she went off to sleep

Chorus:

Then I had a dream, I stood before Jesus
Saw the Book of Life, and my name was in there
Lord I done so much wrong, and I don't deserve mercy
Said there's something about, your mother's prayer"

"I was standing by my window,
On one cold and cloudy day
When I saw that hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away

Will the circle be unbroken
by and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
in the sky, Lord, in the sky

I said to that undertaker
undertaker please drive slow
for this lady you are carrying
Lord, I hate to see here go

Will the circle be unbroken
by and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
in the sky, Lord, in the sky

Oh, I followed close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave

Will the circle be unbroken
by and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
in the sky, Lord, in the sky

I went back home, my home was lonesome
missed my mother, she was gone
all of my brothers, sisters crying
what a home so sad and lone

Will the circle be unbroken
by and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
in the sky, Lord, in the sky

We sang the songs of childhood
Hymns of faith that made us strong
Ones that Mother Maybelle taught us
Hear the angels sing along

Will the circle be unbroken
by and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
in the sky, Lord, in the sky

Will the circle be unbroken
by and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home a-waiting
in the sky, Lord, in the sky

"All is well

Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other, we still are.
Please, call me by my old familiar name.
Speak of me in the same easy way you always did.
Laugh, as we always laughed, at the little jokes we shared together.
Think of me and smile.
Let my name be the household name it always was,
Spoken without the shadow of a ghost in it.
Life means all it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
Death is inevitable, so why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, - for an interval very near.
Nothing is past or lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before,
Only better and happier.
Together forever.
All is well."

"We Pray For Those Who Mourn

Lord, we pray for those who mourn,
for parents and children,
friends and neighbours.
Be gentle with them in their grief.
Show them the depths of your love,
a glimpse of the kingdom of heaven.
Spare them the torment of guilt and despair.
Be with them as they weep beside the empty tomb
of our risen Saviour,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen."

"Dear Memaw,
Words cannot describe the impact you have had in my life. You have been an inspiration to me since the day I first met you. That day you were joking and laughing, I remember looking at you and smiling to myself about your warmth and your laughter.
I want to thank you for the way you raised John. You taught him what is meaningful in life and not to be of the world. You raised the young man that became the husband of my dreams, the man I thought I would never have. You loved him and guided him and taught him how to be an honorable man and a loving father and husband and for that I will forever be thankful.
I remember the day your first held Landon when he was just a few days old, you held him and loved him and you taught me and John how to handle Landon's colic. I still have that picture of you holding Landon. We often look at it and talk about how you were always there for us in our time of need. You were so giving and kind and you have taught me what it means to be a real woman. A woman of peace with a kind heart and a loving spirit that follows the Lord Jesus Christ.
I know you are in heaven where the streets are made of gold. Where there is no sun, but the light of God. I know you can breathe now and walk freely and that you will never shed another tear.
I am thankful to God that my children have a guardian angel in heaven that watches them when I can't, when they are at school or riding the school bus.
I pray for peace and strength from God for our family and I thank him for the time that we had with you.
I will miss you and I will remember your love and I promise to cherish your son and your grandchildren with all of my heart and soul.
I love you and I know one day we will meet again.

Love Blaise

Lord Of All We Praise You

Lord of all, we praise you
for all who have entered into their rest
and reached the promised land where you are seen face to face.
Give us grace to follow in their footsteps
as they followed in the way of your Son.
Thank you for the memory of those you have called to yourself:
by each memory, turn our hearts from things seen to things unseen,
and lead us till we come to the eternal rest
you have prepared for your people,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen."

Studyin' about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the robe and crown?
Good Lord show me the way"

"I wish, I wish my baby was born
And sitting on its papa's knee
And me, poor girl
And me, poor girl, were dead and gone
And the green grass growing o'er my feet
I ain't ahead, nor never will be
Till the sweet apple grows
On a sour apple tree

But still I hope, But still I hope the time will come
When you and I shall be as one

I wish, I wish my love had died
And sent his soul to wander free
Then we might meet where ravens fly
Let our poor bodies rest in peace

The owl, the owl
Is a lonely bird
It chills my heart
With dread and terror
That someone's blood
There on his wing
That someone's blood
There on his feathers"

"Dear Lord,
Please help me in this time of loss and overwhelming grief. I don't understand why my life is filled with this pain and heartache. But I turn my eyes to you as I seek to find the strength to trust in your faithfulness. I will wait on you and not despair; I will quietly wait for your salvation. My heart is crushed, but I know that you will not abandon me forever. Please show me your compassion, Lord. Help me through the pain so that I will hope in you again. I believe this promise in your Word to send me fresh mercy each day. Though I can't see past today, I trust your great love will never fail me.
Amen."

""Simple Man"

Mama told me when I was young
Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say.
And if you do this
It will help you some sunny day.
Take your time... Don't live too fast,
Troubles will come and they will pass.
Go find a woman and you'll find love,
And don't forget son,
There is someone up above.

[Chorus:]
And be a simple kind of man.
Be something you love and understand.
Baby, be a simple kind of man.
Oh won't you do this for me son,
If you can?

Forget your lust for the rich man's gold
All that you need is in your soul,
And you can do this if you try.
All that I want for you my son,
Is to be satisfied.

[Chorus]

Boy, don't you worry.
You'll find yourself.
Follow your heart,
And nothing else.
You can do this,
If you try.
All that I want for you my son,
Is to be satisfied.

[Chorus]

Baby, be a simple, be a simple man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man"

"I ain't nothin' but a simple man
They call me a redneck, I reckon that I am
But there's things going on that make me mad down to the core
I have to work like a dog to make ends meet
And there's crooked politicians and crime in the street
And I'm madder an' hell and I ain't gonna take it no more

We tell our kids to just say no
Then some panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go
Slaps him on the wrist and then he turns him back out on the town
Now if I had my way with people sellin' dope
I'd take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope
I'd hang 'em up high and let 'em swing 'til the sun goes down

Well, you know what's wrong with the world today
People done gone and put their bible's away
And they're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land
The good book says it so I know it's the truth
An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth
You better watch where you're going and remember where you been
That's the way I see it, I'm a simple man

Now I'm the kinda man that'd not harm a mouse
But if I catch somebody breakin' in my house
I've got twelve gage shotgun waiting on the other side
So don't go pushing me against my will
I don't want to have to fight you but I dern sure will
So if you don't want trouble then you'd better just pass me on by

As far as I'm concerned there ain't no excuse
For the raping and the killing and the child abuse
And I've got a way to put an end to all of that mess
Yeah just take them rascals out in the swamp
You put 'em on their knees and tie 'em to a stump
Let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest

Well you know what's wrong with the world today
People done gone and put their bible's away
They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land
The good book says it so I know it's the truth
An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth
You better watch where you're going and remember where you been
That's the way I see it, I'm a simple man
Better watch where you're going and remember where you been
That's the way I see it, I'm a simple man"

"Well, hope is an anchor, and love is a ship
time is the ocean and life is a trip
You don't know where you're goin' 'til you know where you're at
and if you can't read the stars, well you better have a map

a compass and a conscience, soul so you don't get lost at sea
Or on some old lonely island where no one wants to be

From the begining of creation I think our maker had a plan,
for us to leave these shores and sail beyond the sand
and let the good light guide us through the waves and the wind,
to the beaches in the world where we have never been

and we'll climb up on the mountain, y'all, and we'll let our voices ring
those who've never tried it, they'll be the first to sing

oh my my

First Chorus:
so I'll see you on the other side, if I make it
it might be a long hard ride
but I'm gonna take it
sometimes it seems that i dont have a prayer
let the weather take me anywhere
but i know that i wanna go where the streets are gold
cause you'll be there

oh my my

Well you don't take nothing with you here
and you can't take nothing back
I ain't ever seen a hearse with a luggage rack
so i've torn my knees up praying, scarred my back from falling down
I've spent so much time flying high til i'm face first in the ground

so if you're up there watching me, would you talk to God and say
Tell him I might need a hand to see you both someday

oh my my

Second Chorus:
So i'll see you on the other side, if i make it
and it might be a long, hard ride, but i wanna take it
sometimes it seems that i don't have a prayer
let the weather take me anywhere
but i know that i wanna go where the streets are gold
'cause you'll be there
oh my my
cause you'll be there
oh my my"

"Why did she have to go
So young I just don't know why
Things happen half the time
Without reason without rhyme
Lovely, sweet young woman
Daughter, wife and mother
Makes no sense to me
I just have to believe

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

Loved ones she left behind
Just trying to survive
And understand the why
Feeling so lost inside
Anger shot straight at God
Then asking for His love
Empty with disbelief
Just hoping that maybe

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

It's hard to say goodbye
Her picture in my mind
They'll always be of times I'll cherish
And I won't cry 'cause

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me
Don't worry 'bout me"

"I was walking home from school on a cold winter's day
Took a shortcut through the woods and I lost my way
It was getting late and I was scared and alone
Then a kind old man took my hand and led me home
Mama couldn't see him, but he was standing there
But I knew in my heart, he was the answer to my prayers

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

When life dealt troubled times and had me down on my knees
There's always been someone there to come along and comfort me
A kind word from a stranger to lend a helping hand
A phone call from a friend just to say I understand
Ain't it kind of funny at the dark end of the road
Someone lights the way with just a single ray of hope

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

They wear so many faces
Show up in the strangest places
Grace us with thier mercy
In our time of need

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love"

"Go Rest High On That Mountain"

I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

[Chorus:]
Go rest high on that mountain
Son, you work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and Son

Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered round your grave to grieve
I wish I could see the angels faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing

[Chorus]"

"Some bright morning when this life is over
I'll fly away
To that home on God's celestial shore
I'll fly away

   I'll fly away oh glory
   I'll fly away (in the morning)
   When I die hallelujah by and by
   I'll fly away

When the shadows of this life have gone
I'll fly away
Like a bird from these prison walls I'll fly
I'll fly away

Oh how glad and happy when we meet
I'll fly away
No more cold iron shackles on my feet
I'll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To a land where joys will never end
I'll fly away"
