A servant of God has come home,
Before the Lord, the man of faith arrives.
Many are sad at his leaving,
At his farewell are many tears.
Yet even when our sorrow is deep,
Although our sadness is vast indeed.
The Lord’s grace will cover our grief,
Our tears will turn to joy by His love.
We say goodbye and remember his deeds,
We’ll never forget the legacy he’s left behind.
The faithful soldier has run his course,
Finished his race well he has.
In my heart, I know this is true,
In my soul, I know this is a fact.
That he has received his crown of glory,
Applause he hears from the heavenly host.
Let’s take joy in his accolades,
In our hearts, let’s honor his works.
