Description
My brother Harold and I lost our mother the Sunday before Christmas. The picture is of her before I knew her. She and my dad were beautiful people who were led to do God's work. Mom and Dad were missionaries to Brazil for 39 years and continued to do God's work in every capacity they could. Mom is in a better place now and with my dad who she missed so much after he left.

Lyrics
God Rest Her Soul

Another Dose, all that sufferings got to go
I know it’s time to say good bye
See you smile, you sit up for a while
Gaze across to the other side

And I know
Only God can tell
Soon you’ll be
With your love’d ones there…

Missed her a while ago, now I miss her even more
It was her mind and then her body
She hung on tight to the book of love and life
Down that rocky road to freedom

And I know
She rejoices there
With the King
And the love that He shares…

The presence of the Holy Ghost
Will guide a way to the pearly gates
An entrance stands with doors wide open
“Come pass through Me” as Jesus has spoken
Rejoicing in her victory
Leaving this world for eternity
God rests his hand upon her soul
The glory of His love for ever more…

Amen.

Nice tribute, John always hard to lose the one(s) you love so much, and in my mind, Mom most be the harder one to lose… I still have both my parents, but I know one day the will go…It's hard just to think about it.

P.S your Mom look like an angel, and thanks for sharing, peace.

you got me brother
with the line "Missed her awhile ago, now I miss her even more"... I know how that feels. I still miss the gentle angle that was my mom. God bless john ... it's just a short time till we all say hello again to those we love and lost.

I like your interpretation and it works very well, I tried to take a subtle approach, the phrase connected more to the preceding, it was her mind and then her body. Mom had a bad case of dementia. I was attempting to get across that I also missed her before she started loosing her memory. Thanks for the kind words and listen.

A very loving dedication
And you both have my heartfelt condolences; I am so very sorry to hear of her departure. This song struck very close to home, because I remember my own mom's final months and how bravely she would rouse herself to give me hope that she was getting better, which really was not the case; I lost her the day before my 22nd birthday and a few days after she passed away, I had found a watch she had intended to give me on me that day. She was a brave woman and I'm sure you mother was as well. I've always loved gospel music and this was so very beautiful; I'm certain mom is up there and feeling more than a little proud of what you have done here John. Please send my regards to Harold (I hope he is doing well--you know, he's the only person I've met in person on this site and it was an afternoon I'll always remember). You take care of yourselves now, Michael

John...
What a heartfelt tribute and remembrance of your Mom. Your words are poignant and the top-drawer music serves to move their meaning forward. That lovely organ/choral interlude… wonderful moment of pause to consider where your Mom is now. Thanks for posting this one. Good for us to hear. And good for you.

blessings,
Jack

Thanks for listening and the kind words. I was going for that angelic sound. I didn't have a choir available so I did my best with the synth.

Hey John, my sympathies go out to you and Harold. As you know, i have experienced this recently too, and I know the pain. She is a lovely lady and is smiling upon you, Harold and your families. The song, is very nicely written and performed. Keys are a nice add, and of course your Feel "feel" on the 6 string...you have your own sound and it always works. Nice.

Some day you'll have to recount your adventures as missionary kids. It takes special folks to lay down their lives that way. I have friends serving now. Thanks.
