God saw you were getting weary,
He did what He thought best;
He put His arms around you
And Whispered Come and rest.
He opened up His golden gates
On that heartbreaking day,
And with His arms around you
You gently slipped away.
It broke our hearts to lose you
You did not go alone;
A part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
