Thaddeus Beasley Obituary

"May the work I’ve done speak for me. May the work I’ve done speak for me. When I’m resting in my grave, there is nothing to be said; May the work I’ve done, speak for me. May the life I live speak for me. May the life I live speak for me. When the best I try to live, my mistakes He will forgive; may the life I live speak for me. May the service I give speak for me. May the service I give speak for me. When I’ve done the best I can, and my friends don’t understand may the service I give speak for me. The work I’ve done, it seems so small, sometimes, it seems like, seems like nothing at all. But when I stand before my God, I want to hear Him say well done. May the work that I’ve done, speak for me."
