God’s Garden Poem
By Melissa Shreve
God looked around his garden- And found an empty place, He then looked down upon the earth- And saw your tired face.
This poem has been written for a grandmother, but could be an equally poignant tribute to a grandfather, mother or Dad – especially if they were suffering from illness.
God’s Garden Poem Lyrics
God looked around his garden
And found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, ‘Peace bethine’.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
