The Angels Came and Said

The Angels came and said

It was time to go.

Don't worry Dad

we will be fine.

You have cared for us

well and done your best,

Now it's time for you to rest.

It broke our hearts

to lose you

But you do not go alone,

'Cause a part of us

goes with you

The day God called you

to His home.
