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.
