Gone to be with Jesus

Gone to be with Jesus,

not just gone to sleep

Resting now with Jesus,

finally at peace.

 

Gone to be with Jesus,

no more of this earthly world.

Resting now with Jesus,

life lived for all its worth.

 

Gone to be with Jesus,

husband, father, brother, son.

Resting now with Jesus,

His work on earth is done.

 

Gone to be with Jesus,

life will never be the same.

Resting now with Jesus,

but memories remain.

 

Gone to be with Jesus,

finally at peace.

Resting now with Jesus,

the shepherd’s found His sheep.
