Sweet Rest

Your days were once filled 
With so many things that 
Were unknown to you but 
You still remained faithful 
In addition, served me with 
A joyful heart.

That is why I have come to 
Take you to a place that 
Not many will see come on 
With me my child I will 
Give you that sweet rest.

I will take the painful days 
Away and give you that 
Forever joy, which you use 
To sing about.

I told you that I was going to prepare a place for you 
One which you have never seen so when you finally 
Open your eyes you will witness a land where endless 
Milk and honey flows.

Rest safely in my arms now my child your father knows 
What is best better days ahead I have come to give you 
The very thing your soul has needed which is rest from 
The pains of this world.

Here are your wings of gold now fly free go and enjoy 
The sweet rest I have given to thee.
