God looked around his garden,
And He found an empty place.
He then looked down upon earth
and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
and lifted you to rest,
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain,
He knew that you would never
get well on earth again.
He saw that 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 didn't go alone,
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
