In Memory of Grace

Waters of Sleep
©2011 Gibbens/Weston


If you’ll find just a handful, a handful of loved ones,
If you’ll find just a handful of good friends to me,
Let them lower me down with their kind helping hands, oh,
Let them lower me down to eternity.

Body gon’ die,
Body gon’ die,
Body gon’ die,

Body can’t live.

May the hands of the man who walked on the water,
The hands of the man that commanded the deep,
The hands of the man in the cold stormy sea, oh,
Raise me again from the waters of sleep.

Spirit will live,
Spirit will live,
Spirit will live,
Spirit can’t die.

Goodbye to my friends and all whom I did wrong,
Goodbye to my brothers and sisters so strong.
I’ll meet you no more in a sweet conversation
Till I take your two hands on that distant fair shore.

Body be raised,
Body be raised,
Body be raised,
Body rejoice.
