Broken is our Family circle
Our dear one has passed away
Passed from earth and earthly darkness,
Into bright and perfect day
But we all must cease to languish,
Over the grave of him we love,
Strive to be prepared to meet him,
In the better world above.
Heavens gate swung gently open,
The Master called softly,
And you, dear one, took the Master's hand,
And your work on earth was done.
We'll never cease to miss you,
And shed many silent tears,
Because we cannot share with you
Our hopes, our joys, our fears.
But one day in God's garden.
When the Master calls us to come.
You'll be at the gate with open arms
And say to us, "Welcome Home!"
A million times I've needed you
A million times I've cried
If love could have saved you
You never would have died
Things we feel most deeply
Are the hardest things to say
My dearest one, I loved you,
In a very special way
If I could one lifetime wish
One dream that could come true
I'd pray to God with all my heart
For yesterday and you!
