Come With Me
The Lord saw you getting tiredâ€¨
And a cure was not to be,â€¨
So He put his arms around youâ€¨and whispered, "Come with me"
With tearful eyes, we watched you sufferâ€¨
And saw you fade away,â€¨
Although we loved you dearly,â€¨
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,â€¨
A beautiful smile at rest,â€¨
God broke our hearts to proveâ€¨
He only takes the best.
It's lonesome here without youâ€¨
We miss you so each day,â€¨
Our lives aren't the sameâ€¨
Since you went away.
