  1. God’s Garden
    God looked around His garden
    And He found an empty place
    He then looked down upon the earth
    And saw your precious face

    He put His arms around you
    And lifted you to rest;
    God’ s Garden must be beautiful
    He always takes the best.

    He knew that you were suffering
    He knew you were in pain
    He knew you’ d never ever
    Get well on earth again.

    So He closed your weary eyelids
    And whispered ‘Peace be thine ‘
    Then He took you up to Heaven
    With Hands so gentle and kind.

    It broke our hearts to lose you
    But you did not go alone,
    For part of us went with you
    The day God welcomed you home.

  8. We had a wonderful grandmother,
    One who never really grew old;
    Her smile was made of sunshine,
    And her heart was solid gold;
    Her eyes were as bright as shining stars,
    And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
    We had a wonderful grandmother,
    And that’ s the way it will always be.
    But take heed, because
    She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,
    So let’s make sure
    She will like what she sees.
    I love and miss you SO much gram!
