Watch TobyMac’s Song About His Son Who Died at 21

Or a city in the stars
Are you singing with the angels

And you run into my arms
God has you in heaven
But I have you in my heart

But I’m just straight missing him
I wanna wake up to your laugh at 2
Catch you when you steal my shoes
Say good morning, afternoon
Talk you through those “Alex blues”
Listen to your latest beats
Talk about what the lyrics mean

See you do your 2nd show

Thought that you had time to straighten it out
Told me that you were my prodigal son
But this isn’t home

Did he see You from a long way off
Running to him with a Father’s heart
Did You wrap him up inside Your arms
And let him know, that he’s home

21 years, I loved every one
Thank you, Lord, for my beautiful son
