~Our Prayer For Grandpa~
(Written by Justine & Kendra Bisharat for their Grandpa Jack)
One day we'll be together in the light of God's kingdom,
To spend all eternity within God's sheltering freedom.
We'll fly with the angels in glory and peace;
I will await the day your hand should take me.
We'll remember you always Grandpa;
And can never forget,
The feelings we've shared
Since the day that we met.
