A Cloud Of Witnesses

We watched them running down the aisles
Children’s time Sunday morning
The preacher asked them who they loved
They all smiled and started pointing
To ther mom, their dad, the teacher from their kindergarten class
Each and every one had just become…

A cloud of witnesses that would see them through the years
Cheer them with a smile and pray them through the tears
A cloud of witnesses that would see them to the end
And shower them with love that never ends
A cloud of witnesses

They stuck together through the years
The best of friends faith could foster
So when they found out one of them
Had heard the news he’d lost his father
They ran to him and prayed and put their hands upon his head
And slowly one by one they’d all become…

A cloud of witnesses, as they sent above a prayer
They took a hold of hands and circled round a friend
A cloud of witnesses with a faith just like a rock
They helped him give his father back to God
As a cloud of witnesses

So when it comes the time that heaven calls
They’ll come running to see the ones who’ve gone before
Who ran the race and made the journey home
To find waiting for them at the finish line
Cheering happily, they will run and see…

A cloud of witnesses lined up on a street of gold
As they run the final mile that leads them to a throne
And through the cloud of witnesses they see God upon that throne
And as they fall into his arms they know they’re home
In a cloud of witnesses surrounded by a cloud of witnesses…
