It’s time for this spirit to leave
No time for you to sit and grieve
A soul too soft its pain to bear
Soon to leave this hemisphere
Is death not the open door - free of pain?
Through which we pass to life again
Keep in line with mine eye
And stay with me till dawn is nigh
We do have but a little while.
So let me see that lovely smile!
If only you could see how truly you
Breathe life into these lungs and my soul too!
I wonder what my final thought will be
What sight will be my eyes last see?
When life’s light turns to endless night
With your eyes no longer in my sight
And death’s calm soothes to end the storm
One last happy smile on my lips will form
For as the sun illumes the eastern skies
I’ll pass through Glory’s gate and walk in Paradise!
