He Set Me 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 Him call

I turned my back and left it all.

 

I could not stay another day

To laugh, to love, to work, or play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way,

I found that place at the close of day.

 

If parting has left a void,

Then fill it with remembering joy,

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,

Ah, yes, these things I too will miss. 

 

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow,

My life’s been full, I’ve savored much,

Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

 

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief

Lift up your heart and share with me .

God wanted me now – He set me free.
