God Saw You Getting Tired
God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around you,
And whispered, "Come with me",
With tearful eyes, we watched you,
And saw you pass away,
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay,
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
