"WHITE SAILS"

Verse 1
While I stand here on the shore,
I see white sails spread to the morning breeze,
She goes out on her own,
Heading out for the open sea.

Verse 2
I watch her as she fades away,
Disappears with the rising sun.
A voice behind me says, "She's gone,"
But on the Other Side they shout "Here she comes!"

Chorus 1
Eternity, I can't see
But Heaven's voices speak to me.
The way they see it Up There
Things are perfect and fair.
Our loss is their gain,
In spite of the pain.
Tho' the white sails are borne on the wind,
I know we'll see her again.

Verse 3
As the white sails move with the tide,
Carried on to a Heavenly home.
Tho' I watched from the shore
I know that I, need not feel alone.

Verse 4
Death may hide but not divide,
She's with Jesus on the other side.
She's with Him and He's with me,
So in Him, together we'll always be.

[Repeat Chorus]

Bridge
Let there be no mourning when I go
As much as we've loved,
The times that we've treasured.
No teary eyes, no hopeless goodbyes,
What is born of the Spirit lives on Forever!

Lead Break:

Chorus 2
If inside you're aching
'Cause a loved one is taken,
Your heart can rejoice,
If you make the choice.
To turn and face Heaven,
Where they'll be waiting.
You know they will be There.

But Heaven's voices speak to me.
The way they see it up there
Our loss is their gain,
In spite of the pain.
Though the white sails are
Borne on the wind
I know we'll see her again.
