Pass Away

Description
A funeral song. My best friend's sister passed away a couple years ago, and I wrote this for her. Yeah - everybody cried. Tried something different here: used "Band-In-A-Box" for the starter tracks. Fun stuff (but a really clumsy interface).

Lyrics
Praise God who gives us life, and God who gives us time
And God who gives us love, no matter what
The world can be a place at once both cruel and kind
But we know that His door is never shut

We’re given what we need to hope and help and heal
We share this all with family and friends
Whatever path we walk, the love that we all feel
Will speak for us when this adventure ends

Pass away… to a better place to be.
Pass away… and please wait there for me
When you wake up in the Lord’s own bliss, we ask you, please remember this
We’re thankful for the time that you could stay
We’ll all fly home to heaven, come what may
Pass away…

And here we find ourselves all gathered in this place
To offer up a loving bon voyage
Rejoicing behind tears for you, all in God’s grace
Beloved soul in heaven’s bright collage

Pass away… and touch eternity
Pass away… and God’s face you will see
When you wake up in the Lord’s own bliss, we ask you, please, remember this
We’ll miss you every hour of every day
But we’ll see you in heaven, too, one day
Pass away…

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
