My words are gently spoken
meant only for you to hear.
God asked, if I'd come stay with you,
May I wipe away your tears?
Please, do not be frightened,
for you are never alone.
God stands here beside you,
to guide you to His home.
He knows how much you've suffered,
He shares with you the pain.
God knows firsthand your courage,
while your faith continually grows.
You have shared with Him your strength,
your wisdom and your love.
Each day you shared God's words,
as you promised Him you would.
Your faith has never wavered,
it withstood the test of time.
It gave you strength to overcome
life's most trying times.
Now rest my child, I'll be here when you awake,
