As I looked in my father's eyes
Sat by his bed and held his hand
And I said my last good byes
He just held on for as long as he can
And I heard him say:

Reach one more for Jesus
Before I close my eyes
I must reach one more for Jesus
I won't let another day go by
That's what I'm living for
To reach one more, one more for Jesus

As I sat by father's side
I lay down my head upon his bed
And he felt the tears I cried
And he placed his hand upon my head
And I heard him say:

Reach one more for Jesus
Before you close your eyes
You must reach one more for Jesus
Don't let another day go by
That's what you're living for
To reach one more, one more for Jesus

Before he closed his eyes
For the final time
And left this earth for home
He said:

Reach one more for Jesus
Before we close our eyes
Gotta reach one more for Jesus
Don't let another day go by
That's what we're living for
To reach one more, reach one more for Jesus
That's what we're living for
To reach one more, one more for Jesus

    Human as we are, we all have committed mistakes whether it is huge or small that sometimes we might feel guilty and it will draw us away from god. But our god is all loving god, we could always return to his arms open wide and reach one more.. God bless to the readers...
