Mama's Grace
Lyrics and Music by: Jennifer Sides


Copyright © 2004, Jennifer Sides

FAR AWAY IN THE DISTANCE
I SEE A CHILD BEING CARRIED
TO HER FINAL RESTING PLACE
SINGING WITH THE ANGELS
GLORY TO THE KING
FOR THIS NEW LIFE
SHE HAS SEEN
SHE’S FINALLY REACHED THE PEACE
BEYOND HER DREAMS

AND I WILL NOT FORGET THE WAYS
SHE HAS BLESSED MY LIFE
NOW LOOKING BACK THROUGH THE YEARS
I’VE REALIZED
THAT THE SACRIFICES SHE MADE
ARE WHAT BROUGHT ME HERE TODAY
SO LORD I WANT TO THANK YOU
FOR THE GIFT
THE GIFT OF MY MAMA’S GRACE

FAR AWAY IN THE DISTANCE
I HEAR THE LORD SOFTLY SAY,
“I AM TAKING CARE OF MY CHILDREN
WITH MY MERCY AND MY GRACE
SO HOLD ON TO THIS PROMISE
AND KNOW THAT I AM LORD
I WATCH OVER MY BELOVED
AND I AM WATCHING OVER YOURS”
