UND HÄTTET IHR DEN GLAUBEN,
SO GROSS WIE EIN SENFKORN,
IHR KÖNNTET BERGE VERSETZEN.
I am free
Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free, I’m following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard Him call: I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way; I found my place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things I too shall miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow: I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I savoured much; Good friends, good times,
a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my life seemed all too brief: Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me; God wanted me now, He set me free.
