The Cate Brothers
This Side of Heaven
I must have cried a sea of tears;
My emotions have run dry.
If I could live a thousand years
I would still wonder why.
It does no good to second guess,
Another time, another place.
At so much pain and emptiness
Only time can erase.
I’m reaching out for my Father’s hands.
This side of Heaven, it’s hard to understand.
Must be a reason, is it part of the plan?
Is it part of the plan, this side of Heaven?
We make plans and promises
But there’s no getting peace.
One shining light here on earth
Is now a star in eternity.
Some day we’ll meet beyond the sun
Where a million years are the same as one.
But until then, may His will be done,
May His will be done, this side of Heaven.
