For Mike

Jesus Gonna Build Me A Home
by John Davis

Lay me down next to my kin,
Some day when that trumpet sounds I’m gonna see ’em again,
Everybody’s gonna reap what they’ve sown,
Jesus gonna build me a home.

Don’t you cry, baby, please don’t you mourn,
Everybody’s got to die as sure as they’re born,
But the Bible tells me Death has no sting,
Jesus gonna make me a king.

What’s the use in believing?
Satan overjoys in deceiving.
We’ve gotta run the race,
If we’re gonna see His face.

There’s nothing I’d rather do.
Oh no.

Lay me down, baby, please let me go,
Someday when that trumpet sounds, like I told you before,
Everybody’s gonna reap what they’ve sown,
Jesus gonna build me a home,
One I never could’ve built on my own,
Jesus gonna build me a home.

Was listening to this not long after I heard the terrible news. Made me cry, but somehow helped me feel better too. Hope it helps those who knew and loved Mike – to know without loving was somehow impossible.

Save a space for me, mate. I hope to come home someday too.
