All our days are numbered
Some live on borrowed time
But life is what you make it
Thank God I was so inclined
To accept my Lord and Savior
When the good news sunk in
He paid a heavenly price
By giving His life
And I can't wait to go home to Him

I'm ready to go that distance
And God only knows when that might be
But oh, what joy waits up yonder
Once this old world sets me free

When there's no tomorrow
And glory has come down
Those without Jesus
Are lost and never to be found
So please listen when I'm talking
I'm just saying what needs to be said
Make plans while your still living
It's too late when your dead

I'm ready to go that distance
And God only knows when that might be
But oh, what joy waits up yonder
Once this old world sets me free

Oh, once this old world sets me free

    Played this at my grandfather's funeral to let everyone know that he accepted christ as his personal savior. Even more importantly, i thought it would be a clever way to slip in a nudge to those who haven't made that commitment yet.
