Don’t grieve for me, from pain I’m free

I’m following the path God has laid, you see.

I took his hand when I heard his call

I turned around and left it all.

I could not stay another day

To laugh, to love, to work or play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way

I found the peace on a sunny day.

If my parting has left a void

Then fill it with remembered joys.

A family shared, a laugh, a kiss

Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life’s been full, I’ve savoured much,

Good family, good times, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee.

God wanted me now; From pain I’m free.
