TESTIFY TO LOVE





TESTIFY TO LOVE

~ as performed by Wynonna Judd on Touched By An Angel

All the colors of the rainbow
All the voices of the wind
Every dream that reaches out
That reaches out to find where love begins
Every word of every story
Every star in every sky
Every corner of creation lives to testify

For as long as I shall live
I will testify to love
I'll be a witness in the silences
When words are not enough
With every breath I take
I will give thanks to God above
For as long as I shall live
I will testify to love

From the mountains to the valleys
From the rivers to the sea
Every hand that reaches out
Every hand that reaches out to offer peace
Every simple act of mercy
Every step to kingdom come
All the hope in every heart will speak
What love has done

For as long as I shall live
I will testify to love
I'll be a witness in the silences
When words are not enough
With every breath I take
Will give thanks to God above
For as long as I shall live
I will testify....
I will testify to love






DID YOU?

Did you hear me praying
On the day the angels came?
Did you know I asked you
To spare me from this pain?

Did you see me begging
Not to take my child away?
Did you touch me when I screamed
On that awful dreadful day?

Did you understand my cry
In that lonesome funeral home?
Did you answer my request
Not to leave me all alone?

Did you contemplate my bargain
To please take me instead?
Did you give me any warning
That my child would soon be dead?

Did you accept my thankfulness
For all those wonderful years?
Did you heed my pleading
To dry up all these tears?

Did you walk along beside me
When I needed you the most?
Did you introduce my child
To yourself... the Holy Ghost?

Did you think I'd be forgiving
And understand your way?
Did you know... I finally did
Even though it's not okay?

Did you say you never left me
And you heard my every plea?
Did you wonder where I was
While you waited patiently?

Will you hear me praying
On the day the angels come?
Will you carry me across
And bring my soul back home?

THIS DAY

~ by Arlene Gundersen

This day we keep within our hearts
The day God took Luke home
Knowing, as parents, when we have kids
They're only "ours" on "loan".

For 21 years, the gift of Luke,
brought joy beyond belief.
And now you hold those memories
dear, while journeying with the grief.

And so today, we celebrate Luke
and praise God for His gift.
One day you'll be together again
So let your spirits lift.......

THE FACES OF APRIL

Yesterday's visions
Still drift through my mind,
Of springtime and laughter
When life was so kind.

The world reawakened
From slumberous dream.
The faces of April
Forever remain.

Presently visions
Reveal a new face,
Of angels and sorrow
And death in this place.

Forever in slumber.
Awakened no more.
The faces of April
Like never before.

Tomorrow's visions
Please take me away,
To springtime and laughter,
In that tranquil place.

My world soon awakened
From slumberous dream.
The faces of April
Forever remain.
