Carman, Jesus Keep Me Near The Cross WAV
Thank You Nancy Hoback!

Pray for my soul that God shall see
On that golden street I want to be.
May I rise high in the sky and be with 
My loved one's in the sweet bye and bye.
Fears had me under Satan's evil hand
 I am with God and marching with His army
All over that righteous land.
To my Mother that's left on earth
I will cherish you for you gave me birth.
My suffering is over and I live with no more
Torment or hell
I am now with my Saviour and I bid you 
All a fond "Farewell".

Written By Nancy Hoback for Audra 2004

Sandie, I am in prayer for you and for your family
I know that this has to be the worse hurt that you ever had to face.
The Lord will give you the strength and peace to go on
Take one day at a time and know that I love you dearly
And I plan to be here for you, Nancy

Thank you Nancy!
Thank you Lanell!
Thank you Terri!
The Splendor of the Rose

I've searched among man's flower gardens so rare.
I've looked them through and through yet none can compare
To the one sweet Rose of Sharon who gave Himself for me.
Each time I smell the fragrance I remember the dogwood tree.

It is told Jesus hung upon a cross made from the dogwood tree.
I really don't know if this is true, yet I know He died for me.
He left His touch of beauty in the splendor of the rose
And the longer I serve Him the sweeter He grows.

Jesus has a garden with all the prettiest roses rare.
He gives each one His total attention and His tender loving care.
If He picks one from your family please don't cry because it's gone.
Jesus needs these beautiful roses to sit around His throne.

Weep not for those who have left us for just a little while,
It won't be long until we'll see them, faces glowing with a smile.
Sometimes our minds can't begin to comprehend
But Jesus knows our lives from the beginning to the end.

Life is like a vapor and then quickly it fades away
But life in heaven is forever and with Jesus the roses stay.
So don't grieve for those who have left us.
They have a brand new glorified body and it's not made of dust.

Jesus the King of Kings has a beautiful garden too!
And in His home in heaven the roses continue to grow.
When I get there, I'll rejoice once more
With my special missing rose!

Life is a miracle
Don't let it slip away,
Open your heart to others
Give of yourself each day.

See the beauty in everyone
Regardless of where they've been,
Some have a difficult journey
And really need a friend.

Share your gifts and talents
Listen with your heart,
Do the things you dream about
But don't have time to start.

Pick a bouquet of flowers
Show someone that you care,
Be gracious and forgiving
Life is never fair.

Hold on to your courage
You may need it down the road,
We all have a cross to bear
It could be a heavy load.

If you practice all these things
No matter where you roam,
You may find both sun and rain
But you'll never feel alone!
