Funeral Song

Ok...so I'm slowly becoming ok with the fact that I'm not completely normal.
I'd love this song played at my funeral. It was a long line of thinking this morning...but then this song came on and I love the last couple of lines "Son, welcome home. The war is over." What a glorious, unimaginable day that will be!! I mean, "welcome home" is huge in and of itself. But "the war is over" A-mazing...


It haunts me so
This gloomy weight
That comes and goes
Without a trace
A thousand times my flesh embrace
A thousand more but if for grace

To see the Lord, the promise land
Where in sins pearly gates look bland
And what was once a pearl now sand
That blows away in light of Him

When battle lines become unclear
And the waging war is all I hear
Lord sustain me with Your voice
And the choice to walk in truth

And by the Spirit
That I might see this day
This waging war might go away
And be no more
That I might see His face
And hear Him say
Son, welcome home
The war is over
(shane and shane--clean)

Come quickly Lord...come quickly

I appreciate the clarification. I do not know you all that well, but I know that you are a pretty cool headed cat.. one I look forward to knowing more.

You are a thinker, and a "advocating director" (LOL) and that is cool.
