I went to the funeral of a 15 year old girl who was killed in a car accident a few months ago. This song by Brad Paisley was sung at her funeral and there was not a dry eye in the church. It is such a great song and it really makes you think.
Lyrics When I get where I'm going on the far side of the sky. The first thing that I'm gonna do Is spread my wings and fly.
I'm gonna land beside a lion, and run my fingers through his mane. Or I might find out what it's like To ride a drop of rain
(Chorus:) Yeah when I get where I'm going, there'll be only happy tears. I will shed the sins and struggles, I have carried all these years. And I'll leave my heart wide open, I will love and have no fear. Yeah when I get where I'm going, Don't cry for me down here.
I'm gonna walk with my grandaddy, and he'll match me step for step, and I'll tell him how I missed him, every minute since he left. Then I'll hug his neck.
So much pain and so much darkness, in this world we stumble through. All these questions, I can't answer, so much work to do.
But when I get where I'm going, and I see my Maker's face. I'll stand forever in the light, of His amazing grace. Yeah when I get where I'm going, Yeah when I get where I'm going, there'll be only happy tears. Hallelujah! I will love and have no fear. When I get where I'm going. Yeah when I get where I'm going.
