I have been in love with this song lately. Listen and you'll know why. It makes me cry every time.
Beautiful Eulogy by: Beautiful Eulogy
There used to be a time when we were fine, living life with no particular religious bend. Pretending to be our own gods inventing our own systems of belief so as to not depend anything other than our own self-governing consent. Defending an impending doom with no perceived need to concede to repent. Presuming our innocence in a sense descent. The sting of death was only the inevitable end of everything we could never rightly understand or comprehend. We used to fear the unknown so God made Himself known and atoned mending the relationship between God and man. giving His life as a ransom for many when He died and ascended and in that one event the certainty of eternal death was circumvented, making a way for the day when history stops and time suspends, spending eternity in fellowship that never ends we see the greatest expression of God's love extended in that moment when those who were once in a measly stead became God's friends.
And when it's my time to go, go ahead and take me home I know I'll be with you, I know I'll be with You. And when it is my time to go, go ahead and take me home knowing that I'd rather go, I wanna be with You.
How sweet the Gospel sounds to ears like mine, well acquainted with pain and strained relationships. Friendships that suffer from long-distances or even worse they get severed from something more severe. And He still hasn't wiped away all my tears yet, my cheeks get wet every now and then, even when I give my best, I know I fall short, I get scared when the balls in my court. Focused on my performance, wretched and poor, it makes the message more real when I preach it, I'm not there yet so I'm reachin, reachin for a gold to stand before my King and be speechless. Then, never again will I question if His grace is sufficient to cover my sin, cuz death is gone and all the effects of the evil and wrong will be conquered when His kingdom comes. So this is my hope and my prayer the air that I'll breathe in eternity with lungs that never fail me. If it pleases my Lord, it's only by Your grace use my life til it's poured out for Your sake. until then I'll remain where You have me, with joy when I feel unhappy and a peace that surpasses all my understanding, my life is in the hands of Your love everlasting.
And when it's my time to go, go ahead and take me home I know I'll be with You, I know I'll be with You. And when it is my time to go, go ahead and take me home knowing that I'd rather go, I wanna be with You.
