Take away the suffering,
Take away the pain,
Take away the hurt inside
You won't need those again.

Enter into happiness,
Enter into joy,
Enter into tranquility
And I pray that you will enjoy

No need to lie here anymore,
No need for more of the drugs,
Just remember that I love you
And will cherish one last hug.

I know inside you're tired,
Weary to the bone,
But lay now on God's virtue,
Let Heaven be your home.

I grieve upon your passing
For times we may have shared,
Memories we might have formed
Had health and life been spared.

But I'll know that you're happy,
That you won't suffer pain,
And after I have lived my life
We'll meet one day again.
