We know you are safely at rest,
At peace, in your Heavenly Home,
Having a sweet reunion will your loved ones;
We won’t grieve because you’re gone.
You left in such a hurry,
Without a final goodbye,
But we have blessed assurance,
We’ll meet again in Heaven on high.
So, sleep peacefully, dear loved one,
You deserve the rest.
When God sent His angel to get you,
He wanted His very best.
