Safely Home

I am home in heaven, dear ones;

oh, so happy and so bright!

There is a perfect joy and

beauty in the everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,

every restless tossing passed;

I am now at peace forever,

safely home in Heaven at last.

There is work still waiting for you,

so you must not idly stand,

do it now, while life remains –

you shall rest in God’s own land.

When that work is all completed,

He will gently call you home;

oh, the rapture of that meeting

oh, the joy to see you come!

I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free;

I took His hand when I heard Him call;

I turned my back and left it all.

If my parting has left a void;

then fill it with remembered joy.

My life’s been full, I savored much;

good friends, good times,

a loved one’s touch.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;

yes, these things, I too, will miss.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;

don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your hearts and share with me;

God has me now, He set me free.

No Tears In Heaven

There are no tears in Heaven

so I have left behind this single,

little teardrop to lovingly remind

though absent from the body,

I’m present with the Lord;

the joy of my salvation

is now my full reward.

And just as God has promised,

He’s wiped my tears away,

and nothing can compare to

the wonder of that day.

So wear this in my memory,

and know that up above

there are no tears in Heaven,

There’s Nothing

There’s nothing in this world

that brings such happiness,

as that of a dear sweet child,

to hold, love, and caress.

As one comes into our family

there is no greater joy.

It matters not the gender,

baby girl or baby boy.

There’s nothing in this world

that brings such heartfelt sorrow,

as to have them in your life one day

and find them gone tomorrow.

At the loss of a little child

we must have faith, love, and trust

in God, our Heavenly Father,

who gave the child to us.

Love for the gift He gave us.

Trust in His wisdom divine,

and faith we’ll hold our child again

in a better place, at a better time.

Son Now In Heaven

Last night while I was trying to sleep

my Son's voice did I hear.

I opened my eyes and looked around

but he did not appear.

He said: Mom, you've got to listen

you've got to understand;

God did'nt take me from you Mom

He only took my hand.

When I called out in pain that day

the moment that I died.

He reached out and touched my hand

and pulled me to His side.

He pulled me up and saved me

from hardship and from pain

My body was so badly hurt

I could never be the same.

My search is really over now

I've found happiness within?

All the answers to empty dreams,

and all that may have been.

I love you all and miss you so,

and I'll always be nearby

My body's gone forever

but my spirit will never die!

Live one day at a time

just understand

God did not take me from you

He only took my hand.

Please Don't Fret

Don't grieve for me - the sad times passed

I'm here in our Homeland, Free at-last.

I have the ultimate healing because

I've left the world, I'm in His Arms of Glory held.

For here in Heaven, there's His Big Embrace

and Joy is seen on each one's face.

Jesus walks among us as our Big Brother and Friend

this is our Home now, we're never alone.

Please do not recall my sufferings past

lay them on Jesus, I'm here at last.

It's True what Scriptures say:

those things we've endured cannot compare

with the weight of His Glory awaiting us..

Yes measureless blessings, on earth untold,

for we cannot describe them, you would have to behold.

And when you too, pass over the other side,

the glorious liberty of the children of God

will be yours also as they are mine.

And you will see Your Rewards for patience on earth

Until then be strong, your Race to run

when you're feeling weak, Rest in His Love.

His/Her Journey Has Just Begun

Don’t think of him/her as gone away

his/her journey’s just begun,

life holds so many facets

this Earth is only one.

Just think of him/her as resting

from the sorrows and the tears

in a place of warmth and comfort

where there are no days and years.

Think how he/she must be wishing

that we could know today

how nothing but our sadness

can really pass away.

And think of him/her as living

in the hearts of those he/she touched…

for nothing loved is ever lost

and he/she was loved so much.
