God looked around his garden, and found an empty space.
He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest;
God’s garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you might never get well upon this earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids, and whispered,
“Peace be Thine”
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you never went alone,
For part of us went with you the day God brought you home.
