Let Me Tidy Up A Few Things



oh lord
before my life has ended
let me tidy up a few things
first I need a set of wings
for my soul to set sail
towards
the kingdom of glory
next, I want to continue
to serve God
through
faith and to do His will
through good works
well done thy faithful servant
well done
while
being a guardian angel of mankind
in the presence of God
who is forgiving and merciful
before my life has ended
let me tidy up a few things
