God saw him getting tired And a cure was not to be So he put his arms around him
And whispered “Come to me “With tearful eyes We watched him suffer and
Saw him slowly fade away Although we loved him dearly
We could not make him stay A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands put to rest God broke our hearts
To prove to us, He only takes the best!
