There you sit upon the wall
Where all your lessons hang
Watching over all of us as we sing your name.
Take our hands and guide our way
Showing us how to balance our hopes and our faith.
As we pray upon your memories and your strength
Carrying your words of wisdom through our trials and tribulations
In the morning when the sun arises
Pray to your father to show you what you yearn
He is the one who protects you during the night.
And keeps you safe from the demons you fight.
Never look back for those days have passed.
Do not live in the future for it may never come.
Live for the present and make it a glorious one.
When you lose your way sit quietly and pray
God will understand that everyone strays now and then.
Even though you cannot see this man
He is still there, sitting upon the wall
Where the cross now hangs
Reminding all of us
of his courage and his strength.
Jesus gave his life for us so we could be saved.
