Songs from the Heart

My grandfather passed away last week and he left a great legacy of love and faith. For his funeral service, the request was made for his grandchildren to sing “There is a Fountain” by William Cowper. The first four verses seemed very appropriate, but the final two just didn’t really represent our heart for Grandpa. We could have simply sung the four verses, ending with “Redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die.” I really wanted to sing a song about that redeeming love continuing on after death. So, I wrote a new verse and we sang it on Saturday as we celebrated Grandpa’s life and legacy.

When at my Master’s feet I bow, lay down my earthly crowns,
I’ll sing my song unending there, through all eternity!
Through all eternity, through all eternity,
I’ll sing my song unending there, through all eternity.

I know that my grandpa is singing his heart songs face to face with his Master.
