Grandma You Brought Sunshine To My Life!
By Elton Smith
CCLI Number: 2673011
Here is a song you can sing to your grandmother. Both of my grandmothers have passed on. Hopefully they can hear this from heaven. Grandma, what do you think? - Elton, March 26, 1999
You were born in times more simple than now:
Horse and buggy, mule and plow.
Having nothing, having family and fun.
Every Sunday in the church you would sing,
To the Lord your praises bring.
Thanking Jesus for the rain and the sun.
And as you grew you learned to pray.
You learned to walk in the narrow way.
You learned to sacrifice,
And give where there was wanting.
You met a man who shared your love.
You raised your children through God above.
One child gave life to me,
And that is why I'm singing you this song.
(Short Banjo Solo)
Later on now you are feeble and gray.
'Round your feet my children play.
You tell stories of a time long ago.
Precious moments we are able to share
Bring a happiness so rare.
There is one thing that I want you to know...
Grandma you will always have my heart,
Though we say goodbye, we never will part.
We will meet again some day,
With joy, in the heavenly city.
I can see your love in my children's eyes,
I can hear your voice in their gentle cries.
You are living on through them,
And someday we will gather by your side.
Grandma you brought sunshine to my life!
