132 Pictures Song

Today we finished our 132 Pictures series at Second Mile. It was a thought provoking series that really helped me examine my life and, I think, each of us had a similar experience. We finished today’s sermon with a great song by Kristie Braselton, who is soon going to be joining Second Mile (her husband Matthew is our new associate pastor). Her ability to just write something that fits so perfectly is incredible. So, here is the audio (a demo recording) and the lyrics to the song:

132 Pictures

All of us knew that this day would come soon
But it still didn’t ease the goodbye
The flowers were there and the stories were shared
And the photographs captured his life
And I let myself cry as the pictures went by
On the screen to his favorite song
And it struck me how fast, they were gone in a flash
And what mattered was all that we saw
I watched a lifetime go by in a 132 frames
And I saw what precious little will truly remain

If we get 132 pictures
And a four and a half minute song
What will flash on the screen is a glimpse of what will be our legacy
There won’t be many shots of our trophies
Or of the cars parked inside the garage,
No remodeled kitchens, or sea shell collections in memory
Just 132 pictures
What will they be?

Verse 2
This world says “Pursue, take what’s yours, and accrue.”
While comfort sings its lullaby
But the Kingdom says “Go, take a risk, live to show
That our God is the Giver of Life.”
‘Cause I watched a lifetime go by in a 132 frames
And I saw what precious little will truly remain

It’s the faces, it’s the love
It’s His glory shown in us
The glory of God
Is man fully alive
