Life is just a stepping-stone
A pause before we make it home
A simple place to rest and be,
Until we reach eternity.
Everyone has a life journey,
A path to take with lots to see
God guides our steps along the way,
But we were never meant to stay.
Our final destination is a place
Filled with love, His majesty and grace.
Today we celebrate the life of our friend/loved one
Who has gone before us, the race he/she has won.
His/Her journey has now ended,
His/Her spirit has ascended
Claiming the great reward
With Jesus, our Lord.
