Out of this life I shall never take
Things of silver and gold I make.
All that I cherish and hoard away
After I leave, on earth must stay.
Though I have toiled for a painting rare
To hang on my wall, I must leave it there.
Though I call it mine and boast its worth,
I must give it up when I quit the earth.
All that I gather and all that I keep
I must leave behind when I fall asleep.
And I wonder often, just what I shall own
In that other life, when I pass alone.
What shall He find and what shall He see
In the soul that answers the call for me?
Shall the great Judge learn,
when my task is through,
That my soul had gathered some riches, too?
Or shall at the last, it be mine to find,
That all I had worked for I'd left behind?

Song: You'll Be There
Hope is an anchor and love is a ship,
time is the ocean and life is a trip
You don't know where you're going,
'till you know where you're at
And if you can't read the stars,
well you better have a map
A compass and a conscience,
so you don't get lost at sea
Or on some lonely island,
where no one wants to be
From the beginning of creation,
I think our maker had a plan
For us to leave these shores
and sail beyond the sand
And let the good light guide us
through the waves and the wind
To the beaches in a world
where we have never been
And we'll climb up on a mountain,
y'all we'll let our voices ring
Those who've never tried it,
they'll be the first to sing
Whoa, my, my
I'll see you on the other side
If I make it
And it might be a long hard ride
But I'm gonna take it
Sometimes it seems that I don't have a prayer
Let the weather take me anywhere
But I know that I wanna go
Where the streets are gold
'Cause you'll be there
Oh, my , my
You don't bring nothing with you here
And you can't take nothing back
I ain't never seen a hearse,
with a luggage rack
So I've torn my knees up prayin'
Scarred my back from fallin' down
Spent so much time flying high,
till I'm face first in the ground
So if you're up there watchin' me,
would you talk to God and say,
Tell him I might need a hand
to see you both someday
Life is a gift, accept it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is a mystery, unfold it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a struggle, face it.
Life is beauty, praise it.
Life is a puzzle, solve it.
Life is opportunity, take it.
Life is sorrowful, experience it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a goal, achieve it.
Life is a mission, fulfill it.
