Today I gazed upon your face,
My child of God’s amazing grace.
I thought of all I’d like to say,
If we were given just one more day.
One more day to share the love,
That God gave us from Heaven above.
But you’re not here, I fully know,
And where you are, I can’t yet go.
But while I’m here, I’ll think of you,
Of how you have been made anew.
From head to toe, you radiate,
God’s love in you, amazing grace!
No pain you’ll have forevermore;
No worries like you had before.
In Heaven above, you’re safely there,
Eternal life with others you share.
Thank God for such amazing grace,
You’ll live forever; you’ve won the race!
God gave us all a choice to make,
To live for Him, His gift to take.
It’s sad to see the world these days,
So many lost He came to save.
So while we’re here on earth to live,
Our faith alone to them we’ll give;
And pray they hear from God above,
Accept His gift of endless love.
Until that day God calls us home,
We pray the lost will cease to roam.
That they will know His love so free,
And walk with Him eternally.
