God Saw You Getting Tired

God saw you getting tired.

and a cure was not to be.

So, he put his arms around you and whispered

Come to me.

With tearful eyes we watched you

And saw you pass away.

And although we loved you dearly,

we could not make you stay.

A golden heart has stopped beating,

hard working hands at rest.

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best.
