"For I am now ready to be offered and the time of departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight
I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness,
which the Lord, the righteous judge shall give me at that day and not me only, but unto all them also that
love his appearing.
II Timothy 4:6-8

"God’s Glorious Reception"
God say you getting tired and he did what he thought was best
He put his arms around you and whispered, "Come to me
In tears we saw you sinking, and watched you fade away
Our hearts are truly broken, we wanted you to stay
But when we saw you sleeping so peaceful, free from pain,
How could we wish you back? With us to suffer again.
