Paraphrase of Knowing What I Know about Heaven

By Sarah Darling

I bet the trumpets played
 And the angels sang every sweet refrain of Amazing Grace
 And that heaven's hands opened up the gate
 And Sandra’s family danced when they saw her face
 As happy as they were to see her coming
 We were just as sad to have to watch her go
 Knowing what I know about heaven
 Believing that Sandra’s all the way home
 Knowing that she’s somewhere better
 Is all we need to let her go
 I could hope that we could pray her back
 But why on earth would we do that
 When she’s somewhere life and love never ends
 Knowing what I know about heaven
