“It Came My Time to Leave”
Don't spend too much time in mourning. Tears are for the sad. I left to be with Jesus, and this should make you glad. Don't waste your hours in grieving. No need to feel distress. I'm tired of life's frustrations, and had to get some rest. Don't vex yourself with questions, or try to reason why. Life here for me was ended; it came my time to die. Don't lose the love I gave you; feed it with your care. Grow it with devotion and spread it everywhere. Don't fret because my leaving came in such a way. We'll have another meeting, in God's Eternal Day!
