Don’t spend too much time in mourning

Tears are for the sad;

I left to be with Jesus

And this should make you glad.

Don’t waste your hours in grieving,

No need to feel distress;

I’m tired of life’s frustrations

And had to get some rest.

Don’t puzzle yourself with questions

Or try to reason why

Life here for me was ended,

It came my time to die.

Don’t lose the love I gave you

Feed it with your care;

Grow it with devotion

And spread it everywhere.

Don’t fret because my leaving

Came in such a way;

We’ll have another meeting

In God’s eternal day.
