God saw you were getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you
And whispered, "Come to me."

With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
