Last Notes Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves

There is a part of me
That's only visiting
Torn from eternity
A stranger here

The awkward mingling of
The loveless and beloved
So far from things above
While I am here
So when the last notes of my
Soul's summer symphony
Go stealing through this old world's
Cold garden gates
I will hold no fear
As You close my book of hours
And the hands of heaven carry me
Carry me home to stay
O Death where is your sting
Your tears and tremblings
His peace is lingering
Even now
O Grave the battle's fought
Your vict'ry has been lost
To Christ who gave it all
To take me now
O Grave the battle's fought
Your vict'ry has been lost
To Christ who gave it all
To take me home

Story Behind The Song:
My grandmother died in 1992 when I was 19. At the very end of her life her family gathered around her bed and sang Love Lifted Me, a song she sang every child and grandchild to sleep with when we were children. Even as the cancer ate at her fragile body, stinging her every breath, she stared upwards past the ceiling with a confident grin. She died smiling defiantly as if to proclaim, "Death, where is your sting? Grave, where is your victory? Praise be to God who has given me the victory!" As she was dying we found a poem in her handwriting, written when she was in school. It was called Farewell Song Of The Soul and won her a poetry contest as a teenager. I wrote this song as a modern rendition of that poem, a tribute to her life, and as a reminder to all who hear it that Christ has conquered Death and our fear of it. (1Corinthians 15:51 -58)
