no more sorrow - no more pain

I think/hope the few people who attended my friend's memorial service the other night were blessed as they pictured her while Playmaker & a friend sang this song.  She suffered much as a result of   a string of poor choices she'd made on her journey thru' this life.   But toward the end there was a Peace she came to know - an Anchor for her soul ... as described here:

And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles' wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise ....

1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[a] free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, 4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
