The Golden Gates were open
A gentle voice said come.
And with farewell unspoken
He comely entered home.
It's sometimes hard to understand
Why these things have to be,
Our sad hearts seek the answer
But it's not for us to see.
We can only trust in God
And know that in some way
We'll understand someday.
