Words of Comfort

If you should awaken one day to find

that God had forbidden my sun to shine

I wish that you would not shed a tear

just bow your head and say a prayer.

My funeral is not being preached today

it is a celebration in a way.

I’ve shed my troubles, my ups and downs

now I’m going home to get my crown.

I’ve done some bad, I’ve done some good

but God is merciful, He understood.

He forgave my sins and set me straight

and now I can enter the Pearly Gates.
