God Looked Around His Garden
God looked around His garden
and found an empty place.
Then He looked down upon the earth
and saw your tired face.
He placed His arms around you
and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful,
for He only takes the best. He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain,
He saw the road was getting rough
and the hills were hard to climb,
so He closed your eyes and whispered
“Peace be Thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone,
a part of us went with you
the day God called you home.
If love would have saved you, you never would have died.
