was never meant to be
The place that we would call
our home for all eternity.
And though we would not
choose to leave,
a loving God
who knows best,
And in His time, He lifts us
to a place of peace and rest.
So when at last I say good-by,
Don't let our tears keep falling,
For when my time has come,
I'll hear my Savior calling,
And as He takes my
All pain and cares will disappear,
And He will gently whisper,
I'm glad you're here."
