Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free, I’m following the path God laid 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 laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way; I found my place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things I too shall miss.
Perhaps my life seemed all too brief: Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me; God wanted me now, He set me free.
