Good To Know It’s Not The End

Previously recorded by the Akins.

Written by Nick Akin and Joshua Kirk

Verse 1
It was cool on a Sunday morning
And Grandpa took a train to Heaven’s door
Finally got to walk with Jesus
And wasn’t hurting anymore
I won’t forget that look on Grandma’s face
Piano played Amazing Grace
Now what we all would give

Chorus
Just to walk with him down that gravel road again
To hear the stories of the war he fought in
To share a smile and laugh, sit and talk about the past
I wish that things could stay the way they’ve been
Good to know it’s not the end

Verse 2
She finally clocked out at the office
Had only one thing on her mind
Made a phone call to her husband
Said let’s go on a date tonight
She said I love you and hung up the phone
Got in the car but didn’t make it home
And now what he would give

Chorus 2
Just to walk with her through the neighborhood again
To share a meal with her in that same booth they sat in
And just to tell her how his day was spent
He wishes things could stay the way they’ve been
Good to know it’s not the end

Last Chorus
So praise the Father, Praise the Son
The battles over, Our victory’s won
When my train is boarding to take me home
I’ll just smile and tell whoever holds my hand
Good to know it’s not the end
