God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be.
So He closed his arms around you
And whispered “Come to me”.
You didn’t deserve what you went through,
And so He gave you rest
God’s garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best.
So when we saw you sleeping
So peaceful and free from pain
We could not wish you back again
To suffer that again.
