God’s Call

God looked around His garden
and found an empty space,
He then looked upon the earth
and saw your tired face.

He put His arms around you
to give you needed rest,
knowing that His garden
is where you’d do the best.

He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that through His endless love,
your faith He could sustain.

He saw the road was rough,
the hills so hard to climb,
so He closed your weary eyelids,
and whispered,
Peace be Thine.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you do not go alone,
for part of us went with you
the day God called you home.
