Heaven's Open Arms

The crash of Flight 111 and the resulting loss of life was an event that touched the lives of many Nova Scotians. As musicians, our response took the form of a song, Heaven's Open Arms, written specifically for the those who lost loved ones in this tragedy. The song is our tribute to those lost and is dedicated to families all over the world who must deal with the loss of a loved one, for whatever reason or circumstances.


Heaven's Open Arms

When I die, may I fly straight to heaven's arms
There may I rest, safe from harm.

I will fly I will fly straight to heaven's open arms.
I don't want to say good bye but I must go.
It is far too soon I know and it leaves heartache below.
Please remember that I love you as I go.

In an unforgiving sea, now a resting-place will be
It's a tragic loss (of humanity).
Scattered flowers mark the spot, small tribute to the lost
No one is an island in life's sea.

Chorus

There are many helping hands reaching out from land to land
Giving all they can (women, child and man).
Though the empty space remains, and will never be the same
Love of others helps to ease the pain.

Chorus

Length of days cannot be known.
Life's a gift not ours to own.
Take the time to tell someone I love you, I love you.

Chorus

This I pray, come what may.
Those I leave would know
How full my heart, I love them so.
