Song -- My Last Day

If today were my last day, what would I do?

If I knew, I would spend it here serving you,

For I love you and you are my friend.

Oh! How blessed! To be loved to the end.


If today were my last day, where would I go?

Paris, or London? The answer is no.

Being with beloved friends and family,

Brings such joy and happiness to me.


If today were my last day, how would I feel?

With laughter and music, my heart you would steal!

With such mem'ries we never will part,

And our faith from trial strengthens the heart.


If today were my last day, what would I say?

"Be kind to each other and love in a way

That your heart will open to His word,

And be a faithful instrument of the Lord."


I have faith my Lord waits for me with a place of joy eternally!

(c) 1989 Lurlynn L. Potter


Song -- Here am I, I am Ready

Here am I. I am ready.

Heaven now is in my view.

For my mission here is ended,

And another just begun.


Don't cry for me. I'm free and new!

You cared for me, now I'll pray for you.

Remember the Lord! His promises are real!

Have courage to act on the things you feel!


Father, here. I am ready.

Now I come home to Thee.

For my mission here is ended

And another just begun.


And my Savior I will see, for all eternity!

(c) 1992 Lurlynn L. Potter

Song - Eve, Mother of Us All

On that morning she awoke to a new world,

To a place made just for her,

And the handsome man who knelt across the alter was chosen for her before the world.

Valiant like her husband, she was chosen before time to be

The mother of us all, the mother of us all.

Married for eternity, they labored and loved happily,

And were taught by the Lord, and were taught by the Lord.

They learned and grew together, but they did not understand,

How to fulfill the Lord's command, to not partake, obey AND multiply.


With child-like faith, she tried to understand,

With child-like faith, her part in God's great plan.


With hunger and a thirst for truth she followed.

In eagerness, she tried to understand.

This faithful daughter had to choose in meekness, which was the greater command.


She struggled with her hard decision, hosts of heaven waiting anxiously

For without a fall man could not be... Nor Atonement would we need.

Having chosen to partake, with her husband's love so strong;

Consoling her in meekness, he with tears of love partook that man may be.

That we may be...

With child-like faith, they tried to understand,

With child-like faith, their part in God's great plan.


Together working, worshipping and praying.

In faith they loved and taught their children well.

And they were promised Life Eternal where only the valiant may dwell.


With child-like faith we can each understand,

With child-like faith, our part in God's great plan.


With hunger and a thirst for truth we follow.

In faith we love, and try to understand.

As faithful children we can choose in meekness to obey and follow ALL of God's commands.

Simeon's Promise

Song -- Simeon's Promise

Though my eyes are dim, I will recognize Him,

I will know His face. He'll feel my embrace.

I will take His hand. He's the Son of Man.

They will bring Him here; of this I have no fear.


For I was promised to see the child before my last day of life.

Yes, I was promised that I'd behold the Savior of mankind.


I know it is He. He was meant to be

King above all kings, Lord above all lords.

He'll atone for all, save us from the fall.

Through His agony, He'll save you and me.


Oh I was promised to see the child before my last day of life.

Yes, I was promised that I'd behold the Savior of mankind.


Now, I can die, for I have seen the light shining from His face in this holy place.

The Anointed One, Heaven's only Son. This, you will agree, fulfills the prophecy.

For I was promised to see the child before my last day of life.

Yes, I was promised that I'd behold the Savior of mankind.
