The day God took you home
In tears we saw you sinking
And watched you pass away
Our hearts were almost broken
We wanted you to stay
But when we saw you sleeping
So peaceful free from pain
How could we wish you back with us
To suffer that again.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God took you home.
