God Looked Around His Garden

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 you would never get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And hills were hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids, and whispered,
“Peace be thine.”
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone,
For a part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.


I’d like the memory of me
To be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow
Of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo
Whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times
And bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve,
To dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.

If Tears Could Build a Stairway

If tears could build a stairway, 
And memories a lane.
I would walk right up to Heaven
And bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say “Goodbye.“
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness,
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want me
To mourn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.
Since you’ll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today~
A hollowed place within my heart 
Is where you’ll always stay.

Come to Me

God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered “Come to Me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best

The 23rd Psalm

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; 
He leadeth me beside still waters.
He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me
In the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for thou art with me.
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me
In the presence of mine enemies; 
Thou anointest my head with oil; 
My cup runneth over. 
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me 
All the days of my life; 
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Do Not Stand

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there; I did not die.

Walk in Sunshine

May you always walk in sunshine
And God’s love around you flow,
For the happiness you gave us;
No one will ever know.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone;
A part of us went with you;
The day God called you home.
A million times we’ve needed you.
A million times we’ve cried.
If love could only have saved you,
You never would have died.

Prayer of St. Francis

Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master; grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand; 
To be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, And it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Prayer of St. Anthony

O glorious St. Anthony,
Safe refuge of the afflicted and distressed, 
Who by miraculous revelation
Has directed all those who seek aid to come to Thy altar with the promise
That whosoever visits it for nine consecutive Tuesdays, and there piously in vokes thee, 
Will feel the power of the intercession.
I, a poor sinner, encouraged by this promise, 
Come to thee. O powerful Saint,
And with a firm hope I implore thy aid,
Thy protection, thy counsel and thy blessing.
Obtain for me, I beseech thee my request in this necessity.
But if it should be opposed to the Will of God
And the welfare of my soul,
Obtain for me such other graces
As shall be conducive to my salvation. 
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
