This Life
by Mark Bishop

Album: This Is What It's All About


There is a home beyond this one; 'tis a place of eternal rest.
Where we shall meet once again they say, but this time as heavenly guests
And so what I should say I'll say now to you lest
I should leave and can't tell you again….
I'm glad I got to know you in this life.
Glad God allowed me to know you in this life.
Who knows after the journey's through
What we will see somewhere beyond the blue.
Oh what a gift I was given to know you here in this life.
Soon comes the day when our traveling is done.
The journey is finished. The race has been won.
A long life for others; a short life for some…
All in God's wisdom we pray.
For mothers and fathers and daughters and sons,
Live all of the days of their lives till they're done.
They cherish the memories; even the ones
That bring melancholy and tears.
If each life were a tree and each day were a leaf
Then winter's a bandit and time is a thief.
Look past the gray skies; past sorrow and grief
To the joy that the springtime will bring.
And if life were a river that flowed ever more
And then someday we land on a heavenly shore
I will step on those banks where I'll travel no more.
All there, together again.
I'm glad I got to know you in this life.
Glad God allowed me to know you in this life.
Who knows after the journey's through
What we will see somewhere beyond the blue.
Oh what a gift I was given to know you here in this life.
All of the miles we have traveled; all of the days we have lived here below.
What makes the journey worthwhile are the good people we know.
And saying goodbye; seems we just said hello
But we shall meet on life's other side.
