I have left my heart with you

So, don’t you cry.

The love that’s deep within me

Shall reach you from the sky

You’ll feel it from the heavens,

And it will ease your pain

Know that I am at peace because

Heaven is now my gain.

I have no more suffering and I am pain free,

Live life to please God so you can come and see me.
