Don’t grieve for me, for now, I’m free, to follow the path that God made for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call, I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day, to love, to laugh, to work, or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way, For I found peace, at last, that day.
If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembering joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with hearts of sorrow, my wish for you is the hope of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I’ve savored much, good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time has seemed much too brief, don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me, God wants me now — He’s set me free.
