Four years we held you in our arms But couldnt shield you from all harms. We bound you to us with Love's strong cord, Now we've released you to the Arms of the LORD.
Here we chased and there we ran To keep you here as long as we can; To Tennessee we drove, to the east coast we roam, At last Jesus said, My son, come on Home. Your assignment is complete, Come and sit at Jesus feet!
Your place is ready, with jewels rare, For everyone you've touched down there. You can run and laugh up here And I will dry the lingering tear.
I will keep your family, Son They'll be safe til Days are done. Time will erase the parting pain, God sustains til we meet again
