Album: Stories & Songs
She road the bus until the dusty road came to an end.
A missionary answering the call.
She made her way through the mountains never looking back.
Until she reached the tribal village wall.
For forty-seven years she told how Jesus saves.
There were few successes but she faithfully remained.
And when she breathed her final breath only native people
Grieved but as she arrived in heaven, she could not believe
She heard applause echo through the
Courtyard, and off the Jasper walls.
Applause, the sound of saints and
Angels welcoming her home where she belonged.
And right before her eyes stood the
Holy lamb of God leading all of heaven in.
He loved his wife for fifty years and they brought three sons.
He ran a little country grocery store.
He never made a million but he made a happy life.
And always said he couldn't ask for more.
When he saw his neighbor in need of daily bread,
There'd be a card with Jesus loves you and food left on their steps.
The church was full the afternoon, they laid him in the grave.
But he never seen a crowd like the one at heaven's gate.
