Hearts are breaking as we mourn
the loss of one so dear.
but we find comfort in our God,
and feel His presence near.
He knows how great our sorrow.
His Son died on earth too.
It was here He suffered all
for love of me and you.
Because of Christ's atonement
our loved one yet lives on,
in a place of peace and happiness.
Where suffering is gone.
Death is the door to eternal life,
and one we'll all walk through.
Our dear one waits, until one by one
it opens for us too.
