You Raise Me Up - There Will Be A Day: R.I.P

Dec. 8, 2012 at 2:42 am

This is for my Grandmother, Carol, who sits on God's shoulders. I love you. <3 I could have copy-pasted these...But I typed every word. R.I.P.
 
 
 
You Raise Me Up: Josh Groban 
 
 
 
When I am down
And oh, my soul so weary
When troubles come and my heart burdened be
Then, I am still and wait here, in the silence
'Till you come and sit a while with me
 
 
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up, to more than I can be
 
 
[Instrumentals]
 
 
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up, to more than I can be
 
 
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up, to more than I can be
 
 
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up, to more than I can be.
 
 
You raise me up...to more than I can be...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
There will be a day: Jeremy Camp
 
 
 
I try to hold on to this world
With everything I have
But I feel the weight of what it brings
And the hurt that tries to grab
 
 
And many trials that seem to never end
His word declares this truth
We will enter in this rest, with wonders anew
 
 
 
But I hold onto this hope, and the promise that He brings
There will be a place with no more suffering
 
 
There will be a day, with no more tears, no more pain
And no more fears
There will be a day, when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we'll see Jesus face to face
 
 
But until that day, we'll hold on to you always
 
 
I know the journey seems so long
You feel you're walking on your own
There has never been a step, where you've walked down all alone
 
 
Troubled soul don't lose your heart
Joy and peace He brings
And then beauty that's in store
Outweights the hurt of life's sting
 
 
 
But I hold on to this hope, and the promise that He brings
That there will be a place with no more suffering
 
 
 
There will be a day, with no more tears, no more pain
And no more fears
There will be a day, when the burdens of this place, will be no more
We'll see Jesus face to face
 
 
But until that day, we'll hold on to you always
 
 
 
I can't wait until that day when the very one I've lived for always will wipe away the sorrow that I've  faced
To touch the scars that rescued me from the life of shame and misery, oh this is why, this is why I sing
 
 
 
There will be a day, with no more tears, no more pain
And no more fears
There will be a day, when the burdens of this place, will be no more
We'll see Jesus face to face
 
 
There will be a day, with no more tears, no more pain
And no more fears
There will be a day, when the burdens of this place, will be no more
We'll see Jesus face to face
 
 
There will be a day
He will wipe away the tears
He will wipe away the tears
He will wipe away the tears
There will be a day




Gone From My Sight: Henry Van Dy.ke



I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side,
spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts
for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck
of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

Then, someone at my side says, "There, she is gone"

Gone where?

Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast,
hull and spar as she was when she left my side.
And, she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.

Her diminished size is in me -- not in her.
And, just at the moment when someone says, "There, she is gone,"
there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices
ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!"

And that is dying...

*hugs Aeliss* I'm so sorry about your Grandmother! I've had three of my four grandparents pass away, and every time, it was hard.
But I'm so glad that God can comfort you during this time. He can sure do it better then me! <3

*hugs* Thanks. :) I lost my Granddaddy a few years ago, too. They're together again now.
