In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. ~Psalm 31:1

In tears we saw you sinking, and watched you fade away
Our hearts were almost broken, we wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping, so peacefully and 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 called you home.
