I am home in Heaven dear ones, Oh, so happy and so bright! There is perfect joy and beauty in that everlasting light. All the pain and grief is over, every restless tossing past. I am now at peace forever, safely home in Heaven at last. Did you wonder how I so calmly trod the valley of the shade? Oh! But Jesus' love illumined every dark and fearful glade.
He came Himself to meet me in that way so hard to tread. And with Jesus there to lean on, I could have no doubt or dread. Then you must not grieve so sorely, for I love you dearly still. Try to look beyond life's shadows, pray to trust our Father's will. there is work still waiting for you so you must not idly stand.
do it now, while life remaineth. You shall stand in Jesus' land when that work is all completed. He will gently cal you home. Oh, the rapture of that meeting! Oh, the joy to see you come!
