God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So He put his arms around you
And He whispered, “Come to Me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you
and saw you pass away.
And though we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard-working hands at rest,
And although our hearts were broken
We know God knows best.
