My Time Has Come
To you, my leaving’s sad,
but to me, my time has come.
The world’s so full of hatred,
and my job on earth is done.
Yield not to pain and sorrow
behind my leaving you this way.
Just be glad my soul’s at peace,
and listen to the things I say.
Though evil often greets you,
resist the fears and thoughts of woe.
In this world of sin and sorrow,
you’ll need more grace than you will know.
And most of all, be happy
as you live life day by day,
because the happiness you feel,
again may never come your way.
Whatever does go wrong
to turn your life’s dreams upside down;
don’t forget, you’re not alone;
for God will always be around.
