God saw you getting tired and the cure was not to be;
So He wrapped you in His loving arms and whispered, “Come with Me.”
You suffered much in silence, your spirit did not bend;
You faced your pain with courage until the very end.
You tried so hard to stay with us, your fight was all in vain;
God took you in His loving arms and saved you from all pain.
