I haven’t shed a tear my dear
I haven’t felt a pain
For in your passing I can see
The birth of hope again

I haven’t stopped to wonder why
Our Lord did take you by and by
And lead you into slumber
There’s a peace in Heaven that awaits
With joy beyond all number!

No more the pain
No more the sorrow
New life awaits
In your tomorrow

New body, yours
Without the aches
Clean slate, yours
Without mistakes

Blotted out is all your pain
And yesterday shall not remain
This glorious morn you rise anew
For Jesus held out His arms for you
