God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not meant to be
So he put his arms around you
And whispered come to me.
With tearful eyes we watched you
As we saw you pass away
Although we loved you deeply
We could not make you stay.
Your golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
