Song for Rob

Get Flash to see this player.

This is a world of heartbreak. My friend, the friend and pastor of so many, died earlier this week. I went for a walk the other day and between tears these verses came to me. In honour of Rob Hall, who's passion for music was as voracious as his passion for everything else.

And... Please consider donating to the fund to support his wife, Kate, and their three children, Kathryn, Simeon and Cameron. Right now, a substantial amount has come in, but we'd like to see this family taken care of for years. Their journey forward seems so insurmountable, but we can help. Please visit this site and donate, even $20.00 will make a difference. Help support them here. Thank you!

A Song for Rob

You have been friend and father
And faithful lover
And your reward will be written
In lifetimes to come

In the eyes of your children
The lives of your friends
And in the heart of the girl you loved
You loved so well

So together we raise up the banner
Of this life that you lived so well
And together we lift up our cups
And drink back this bittersweet stuff

Cause we can do you no better
Than to raise a joyful sound
As you enter the gates
of eternal praise

Even with our hearts filled
with this bitter draught
The overflow of tears
will yield such sweet fruit

Nice Tribute
Good job, Kris!

Most people can relate to this, in one way or another, although sometimes the deceased aren't missed quite so much! Nor did they live their life quite as well in most cases!

Sounds like a remarkable man, and this is a fitting tribute.

Sorry for your loss.
