For all our loved ones who have gone on to be with the Lord
The road has been so long and hard
Throughout this life of mine.
And many have been the bumps and bends
With each I wondered, "Where will it end?"
Children have come and been such joy
As I watched their lives unfold.
Many a night I did spend In fervent prayer
For children, loved ones, and friends.
Then I stood back and watched Godís mercy unfold
With answered prayer and problems solved.
Along this trail that I did follow
Wandering through lifeís trials
I found a wondrous scheme
Presented with a heart of love.
I learned to depend upon
The Creator of this world of ours.
From His lofty perch He looks down
For our souls His heart earnestly yearns
To bring us all like sheep into his fold.
He lovingly stretched out his arms
And sacrificed His very life
To replace the broken lines
Providing an opening to a heavenly home
Where the strife of this world
Is never to be found.
Now I have come to the end
Of this long and winding road
And have walked those final steps
Into the loving embrace of my Lord.
