Go rest now precious one,
your life in eternity has just begun.
Now you can walk, your legs are brand new.
All of heaven is now in your view.
Look all around, it�s all in your sight,
there will never be another dark night.
Flowers and jewels, the street of pure gold,
and all of the things that have been told.
I can just imagine the smile on your face,
as you walk all around in that beautiful place.
Greeting our loved ones as you walk along,
while singing heaven�s most beautiful song.
This is so very hard, but it will all be okay,
it isn�t goodbye, we�ll see you one day.
We love you and we�ll miss you
and at times it will be tough,
but as with everything, God�s grace will be enough.
