Flags by Brooke Fraser

My grandfather is very sick right now and has few days to live and I wasn't feeling well at all because he lives in India and I won't be able to see him again. I was playing my iPod and this song, Flags, by Brooke Fraser popped up. There's a line that goes

"You who mourn will be comforted,
you who hunger, will hunger no more....

you who weep now will laugh again,
all ye lonely be lonely no more...

I don't know why the innocents fall
while the monsters stand.

I don't know why the little ones thirst but I know the last shall be first"

This song strengthened me in such a way, and I know I won't be singing it for his funeral but I hope somebody does for someone else one day, because it honestly strengths you.
