God Saw You
God saw that you were getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So, He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come to 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,
small frail hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
