v1: What do you do
When you lose someone
You love?
Do you cry?
You know they lived long
And they wanted to go
Do you be selfish
Or be happy they're home?
Chorus: This is a song for

You

This is a song for

Love

This is a song for the

Joy you bring

In your memory

In your spirit
v2: I know that you're gone
But now you are free
From the body
That held you captive
And since you are free
You can soar through the galaxies
And sing to Jesus
With the choirs of angels
Chorus: This is a song for

You

This is a song for

Love

This is a song for the

Joy you bring

In your memory

In your spirit
v3: The thing about you
Is that you loved everyone
No matter the blood
They're your family
And now that you've gone
Home
We know
You're watching over us
Bridge: So now it's time

To celebrate

The life of a

Saint

And now it's time

To remember

The blessing of

The woman we all so

Loved
Chorus: This is a song for

You

This is a song for

Love

This is a song for the

Joy you bring

In your memory

In your spirit
Close: (whisper) I love you G.G.


The author's comments:
This is a song I wrote for my 102 year old great grandmother who just died. She lived her long life to the fullest. I hope you will see her beauty through it.
