Safely Home
I am home in heaven, dear ones. All's so happy, all's so bright There's perfect joy and beauty In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief are over, Every restless tossing passed,
1am now at peace forever, Safely home in heaven at last
And He came Himself to meet me On the way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on Could I have one doubt or dread?

Through it all, you left a beautiful memory A sorrow too great to be told But to us who love you,
Your memory will never grow old. God gave us strength to bear it, And courage to face the blow, But what it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know Your memory is a keepsake, From whence we shall never part, Ihough God has you in His keeping We shall always have you in our hearts.
