While visiting with Mawmaw Sunday, we asked her to sing the song again.
Now I'll pass the hanky to you.
I'm so thankful for technology. I hope we can get better, longer videos of her singing. I just happened to have my cell phone and caught a tid bit of her. Something I will always treasure.
As a child she said for past time they sat around and sang anything from scared harp to made up, crack you up, crazy songs. You should hear some of the silly old songs. She would have herself and all of us laughing in know time with them songs. So, from a woman who has trouble remembering anything, and out of the blue just starts singing a song she learned from childhood, just amazes me. It blesses me!
Hear are the words to the song:
1.What a wonderful beautiful picture I have
of a place with out sorrow or fear
And I'm going to live in that city someday
For my days are all numbered down here
My Lord keeps a record
Of the moments I'm living down here
He knows all about me
all my troubles, my sorrows, my fears
I'm living each moment
through the mercies of God's loving grace
And some day he will call me
To that wonderful beautiful place
2.I will walk on the streets of that city of gold
I will bask in that heavenly light
And I'll look on the face of my Savior so dear
In that city that cometh no night
3.Now I want to be doing the will of my Lord
As I travel this weary some land
So I'll not be ashamed of my record up there
When I stand at the Saviors right hand
