A family captured the touching moment a mother-of-four found the strength to worship her way through her last days of terminal cancer.

As Newsflare reports, a woman from Maryland had only been given a few days to live when she was filmed using what energy she had left to raise her arm during a worship song.

A video filmed on October 11 shows the dying mother lying down with her head tilted towards a phone playing Lauren Daigle’s song, “You Say.” The person recording the video said:

“Our family was gathered at home with my mother who was dying of brain cancer to celebrate her last days. She was unable to speak or open her eyes and could not move her arm much.

We played ‘You Say’ by Lauren Daigle to worship and my mom used all of her energy to get her arm raised to worship the Lord.”

Watch the video below:


The chorus of “You Say” goes:

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing / You say I am strong when I think I am weak.

You say I am held when I am falling short / When I don’t belong / Oh you say that I am yours.’

And I believe / Oh I believe / What you say of me.

The heartbreaking video clearly touched the hearts of other as viewers wrote in the comment section of the Daily Mail:

Such a beautiful moment of the human spirit …

Daigle, a contemporary Christian music star, released the hit single on her newest album, “Look Up Child.” The artist told Billboard at the 2018 AMAs that she was “blown away” by people’s reaction to the song.
