I would not have you grieve for me today
Nor weep beside my vacant chair.
Could you but know my daily protion here
You would not, could not, wish me there.
I know now why He said, "Ear hath not heard."
I have no words, no alphabet.
Or even if I had, I dare not tell
Because you could not bear it yet.
So, only this - I am the same, though changed,
Like Him! A joy more rich
Than I had dreamed that any heart could hold,
And all my life is one glad song.
when you are talking to our Lord
He turns and speaks to me, dear heart,
In that rare moment you and I are just
The distance of a word apart!
So, my loved one, do not grieve for me
Around the family board today;
Instead, rejoice for we are one in Him,
And so, I am not very far away.
