God please heal my heart tonight.
Please let me know it'll be alright.
These earthly things are stripped away;
The clouds once white, now fade to gray.
I need to hear your soft voice speaking.
Sad tears down my face are streaking.
What will I do? How will I move on?
Oh how I wish you weren't gone.
It's finally dragged nigh, this fateful day
My heart skips a beat, but respects I must pay.
Friends gather near, with heavy hearts.
We all sit in silence as the ceremony starts.
The preacher reads, and I manage a smile.
For I know deep inside, you're only away for a while.
When that trumpet blew, I cried for you.
Though you were safe with Jesus, this I knew.
A dear one lost, the grief so strong;
Though now you're where we all belong.
Up there past the pearly gates,
Your heart now yearns, and heaven awaits.
You wonder why people weep for you.
Everything's beautiful, your body is new.
Now all you must do is await the day,
When we'll join you in heaven, we'll join you to stay.
