Song For The Day: “Legacy”- Nichole Nordeman

Deep, deep, deep song.
What will I be remembered for? A question we must all ask at some point.
This is one song we all should listen to once a week in these times (my humble suggestion ?). It’s a good reminder of what is important and how we are all on a journey here on earth. It’s a reminder of why we are here and what we should be doing…,
And while we are all at it, please, let’s enjoy the journey, wisely. For we pass through this world, but once.
It’s a reminder of what we should look forward to. The voice of the master saying, well done my good and faithful servant.

Enjoy!

I don’t mind if you’ve got something nice to say about me
And I enjoy an accolade like the rest
And you can take my picture and hang it in a gallery
Of all the Who’s Who’s and So-and-So’s
That used to be the best at such-and-such
It wouldn’t matter much

I won’t lie, it feels all right to see your name in lights
We all need an “atta-boy” or “atta-girl”
But in the end I’d like to hang my hat on more besides
The temporary trappings of this world

I want to leave a legacy
How will they remember me?
Did I choose to love?
Did I point to You enough
To make a mark on things
I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace
Who blessed Your name unapologetically
And leave that kind of legacy

I don’t have to look too far or too long a while
To make a lengthy list of all that I enjoy
It’s an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile
Where moth and rust, thieves and such
Will soon enough destroy

I want to leave a legacy
How will they remember me?
Did I choose to love?
Did I point to You enough
To make a mark on things
I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace
Who blessed Your name unapologetically
And leave that kind of legacy

Not well-traveled, not well-read
Not well-to-do or well-bred
Just want to hear instead
Well done, good and faithful one

I want to leave a legacy
How will they remember me?
Did I choose to love?
Did I point to You enough
To make a mark on things
I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace
Who blessed Your name unapologetically
And leave that kind of legacy

I don’t mind if you’ve got something nice to say about me
