Didn’t Say Goodbye

You wonder why 1 went away

And didn’t say goodbye;

I couldn’t bear to tell you

For it hurts me when you cry.

My ship came in early this morning

And it was beautiful to see;

The captain was King Jesus,

And he softly beckoned me.

I ran across the leeway

And fell down at his feet

He took me gently in His arms,

My rest is now complete.
