Don't spend too much time in mourning; tears are for the sad.
I left to be with Jesus and this should make you glad.
Don't waste your hours in grieving; no need to feel distress.
I'm tired of life's frustrations and had to take some rest.
Don't vex yourself with questions or try to reason why.
Life here for me has ended. It came my time to die.
Don't lose the love I gave you; feed it with your care.
Grow it with devotion and spread it everywhere.
Don't fret because my leaving came in such a way,
we'll have another meeting on
God's Eternal Day.
