God saw you getting weary, so He did what He thought best
He came and stood beside your bed, And whispered, 'Come and Rest'
You wished no one a fond farewell nor even said goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it And only God knows why.
When God called you to come to rest, you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you the day God took you home.
