Now I’m Free

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free

I’m following the path God laid for me

I took his Hand when I heard his call

I turned my back and I left it all.

I could not stay another day,

To laugh, to love, to work, to play,

Tasks left undone must stay that way.

I’ve found peace at the close of day.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life’s been full, I savoured much;

Good friends, good times

and my loved ones’ touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your hearts and share with me

God’s unbounding love for eternity.

Now I’m Free.
