Divine & Amazing Grace

I know it's easier said than done. But as I have grown older, I do not mourn the loss of a friend or loved one, not like I did in my youth. With maturity, comes a more calm spirit, calm assurance. When I die, I do not want those close to me, to be sad or hurt. Funerals and loss are for the living. If I had my way, my children and family would throw a huge party and rejoice in the fact that I, like a catapillar, have now evolved into a beautiful butterfly, in God's Garden. I ask, that they play this song, Amazing Grace...

Amazing Grace


Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.



Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.



When we've been here a thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

May God bless you!
