When It's All Been Said and Done

I've listened to songs written by Jim Cowan over the years but didn't hear this song until last week when it was sung at the funeral of a much beloved priest - Fr. Bob Bedard, the founder of The Companions of the Cross. I'm so thankful for Fr. Bob teaching us by example the importance of living our lives surrendered to God's will and challenging us to "Give God Permission".

"Lord, whatever you want me to do, I will do."
Highly recommended prayer (caution needed)

Found this lovely performance of Cowan's song


When It's All Been Said and Done

When it’s all been said and done
There is just one thing that matters
Did I do my best to live for truth
Did I live my life for You

When it’s all been said and done
All my treasures will mean nothing
Only what I’ve done for love’s reward
Will stand the test of time

Lord Your mercy is so great
That You look beyond our weakness
And find purest gold in miry clay
Making sinners into saints

I will always sing Your praise
Here on earth and ever after
For You’ve shown me Heaven’s my true home
When it’s all been said and done
You’re my life when life is gone
