|I'm Mad I'm Sad But Glad
I'm mad, I'm sad, but I'm glad
You're free from the pain and tryanny
Deep inside my heart and mind
I know that you are still here in me
I can come speak to you, with no fear in me
So in spirit and in my eyes you are still here with me.
I'm mad, I'm sad, but glad
We celebrate your new life and new home
So I know you can still feel what's going on.
I love you so much and I know you love me too.
I'm mad, I'm sad, but so glad for you.
|Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
And lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct thy paths.

|THANK YOU JESUS
I needed the quiet, so He drew me aside
Into the shadows where we could confide,
I hurried and worried when active and strong.
I needed the quiet, tho at first I rebelled
But gently, so gently my cross you upheld
And whispered so sweetly of spiritual things.
Tho weakened in body, my spirit took wings,
To heights never dreamed of when active and gay,
He loved me so greatly, He drew me away.
I needed the quiet, no prison my bed,
But a beautiful valley of blessings instead.
A place to grow richer in Jesus to hide.
I needed the quiet so He drew me aside.
