No Need To Weep

Oh, my loved ones, why do you weep?

Wipe away your tears, for I’m only asleep

Will not awake when you call my name,

Because in the midst of the night, Death

came. I have earned this eternal rest,

Because in life God put me to the test.

The battle is over and the victory is won,

God spoke to me and

he said, “Well Done.”

He stretched out His hand to beckon me,

And said, “Come home my child, to

eternity.” Wipe away the tears, because

I’m only asleep, I’m in the arms of Jesus,

so there’s no need to weep.

Weeping may endure for the night,

But joy cometh in the morning.
