Raise me up Lord!
I have lived and loved
I have failed and triumphed
I have flawed and feared
I have sinned and repented
My faith is in the Lord and his Holy Word
I would have loved to continue this journey with you but my time here is complete.
Raise me up Lord, I am ready to be received.
Glory be to God!
