Sail On Skipper (Written by Jef Joslin)

Sail on skipper
To heaven’s golden shore
Let the breath of God fill the sheets
The weight of gravity no more
The life you’ve lived laid out for all
To marvel and adore

Play on skipper
In a kingdom symphony
Lay a swingin’ beat at Jesus feet
Feel the kick drums mighty roar
The skies will sing a song of you
To generations forever more

As a seed falls from a tree
Just the same your legacy
Springing up inside of me
And every branch of this family

Smile on skipper
Let the elders fall to the floor
Doubled over with the laughter
Of every silly face you wore
Oh the joy you left behind
In all the ones that you adore
So smile on sweet skipper smile on

As the sun
Sets in the sky
With brilliant hues
It waves goodbye
In the morn again to rise
Your fingerprint immortalized

Live on skipper
Hallelujah for the lamb
What our eyes can’t see
Our hearts perceive
Death blows away like sand
They’ll all be waiting for you
To embrace and take your hand
What a crown of gold awaits you
What a father what a husband what a man
So sail on my skipper
Play on sweet skipper
Live on our skipper
Live on
