God saw her getting tired.
And cure was not to be,
So He put his arms around her
And whispered, “Come with Me.”
With tearful eyes we watched her
And saw her pass away.
Although we loved her dearly
We could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating;
Hard-working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts
To prove to us,
He only takes the best.
