The Lyrics

Not sure if this or my other will show up last; I wanted to give a testimony-type song, but wasn't sure how. Frankly, I just get too anxious because of all the meanness and anger in the world - which seems to have increased in the last couple decades - that I didn't even let comments be left here. Though I know you'd all be nice. (Like blogs and news and such - why do people act so mean on them?) I wanted to talk about forgiveness, love, mercy, Heaven, the analogy of how someone has to ask directions before they can get them...so much stuff. Here's what I came up with. I pray it's a blessing.
There’s a mansion waiting for me, in Heaven so fair,
Where no tears, pain, or suff’ring can e’er harm me.
Though I can get kind of anxious – my brain’s just built that way,
I wrote this in the hope, one day you’ll join me.

How I love to create humor, and easily laugh at life,
With a couple good careers, I have a ball.
But at times it just seems so hard, to communicate things.
But my Heavenly Friend, He knows it all.

Jesus Christ…is such a gracious Friend.
Helps me through it all…and He guides me to the end,
Jesus Christ…is such a gracious Friend.

Oftentimes I just run to Him, the world seem so mean,
People scream or act like they never care.
I neeed so much love and comfort; could be Asperger’s,
Either way His love will always be there.

Jesus Christ…is such a gracious Friend.
He died for my sins…and I know He rose again,
Jesus Christ…is such a gracious Friend

I’ve had a great family with me, but I still need Him.
Only He understands all I’m ever feeling.
When I’m so excited or need a Heavenly hug.
When you call, I know He’ll give your soul healing.

He’s got such love for each of us, though we can’t be perfect.
But He knows, and gave Himself out of His love.
Despite my handicaps, He's made me perfect in His eyes,
And bound for that glorious home above.

Jesus Christ…is such a gracious Friend.
He’ll help you through life…His love will never end.
Jesus Christ, He wants to be your gracious Friend.

My Lord Jesus Christ is such a gracious Friend.
Again, so long, and thankf for enjoying, if this comes up last. I'm writing a book, I'm doing lots of interesting stuff, so...maybe someday we'll meet for real.
