God has taken him home

and given him the peace

that he sought

and so longed for.

If you could see me now

I’m walking on streets of gold.

If you could see me now

I’m standing tall and whole.

If you could see me now

You’d know I’d seen His face.

If you could see me now

You’d know my pain’s erased.
