NO Time:

There’s no time for sad remembrances Because I’m home where I belong. I've conquered all my battles, I’ve even heard the trumpet’s song. I’ve climbed my highest mountain And I’ve reached an even peak, And I’ve found that peace and true reward That you have yet to seek. There’s no time for sad remembrances For you have a precious life; So find comfort in my journey Please don’t bear this pain and strife. Oh! My Father’s house is perfect Just like He said it would be, So dry your tears Because I’m home and now I’m free. I am part of all the beauty That your world has yet to see; So don’t be sad about my journey, Just be glad that I am free!
