Songs

I was listening to a Selah CD on the way to the chiropractor this morning.  I don’t think I’ve listened to this particular CD since before Israel died.  I love it, just haven’t listened to much since then.  But, today I listened to it and was singing along not really thinking about the words, until I realized……well, the same thing I realize everyday afresh and anew……….my son died almost 4 months ago.  He died.  He’s not out on deployment.  He didn’t get stationed in a country so far away that we can’t go see him on a regular basis.  He died.  These 2 songs, the first one first, then the second one right after, just happened to be playing on the CD when I turned it on.

In My Life/We Never Meet Again

There are places I remember all my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better some are lost and some remain

All these places have their moments with people and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living but in my life I loved them all

But of all these friends and loved ones there is no on compares with you
And as memories lose their meaning when I think of love as something new

Though I know I’ll never lose affection for people and friends that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them but in my life I loved you more

Soon we’ll come to the end of life’s journey
And perhaps we’ll never meet anymore
Till we gather in Heaven’s bright city
Far away on that beautiful shore

If we never meet again this side of Heaven
As we struggle thru this world and it’s strife
There’s another meeting place somewhere in Heaven
By the beautiful River of Life

Where the charming roses bloom forever
Separations come no more
If we never meet again this side of Heaven
I will meet you on that beautiful shore

Hold On

If you feel today that you can’t make it Keep holdin’ on, cause you can take it. If you hold on a little while longer Hold on a little while longer Hold on a little while longer Hold on. If you feel it’s raining all in your life And day by day, there’s nothin’ Nothin’ going right Just hold on a little while longer Hold on a little while longer Hold on a little while longer Hold on. Hold on. You gotta hold to His hand God’s unchanging hand. You gotta hold to His hand God’s unchanging hand. You gotta build your hopes on things eternal My God will never let you down. Weeping may endure for the night But if you trust in Jesus Everything’s gonna be all right. Just hold on a little while longer Hold on a little while longer Hold on a little while longer. Hold on. Hold on.

These songs certainly mean something different and deeper to me today than they did 4 months ago.

  1. I love Selah music! So peaceful and uplifting. I play it so often! This song was used as the intro song for a TV show ‘Providence’ that played 15 or so years ago. I always wondered why they chose that particular song. Blessings!
