I am home in Heaven dear ones,
Oh so happy and so bright.
There is perfect joy and beauty,
In this ever lasting light.

All the pain and grief are over,
Every restless tossing past.
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.

Did you wonder why I so calmly,
Trod the valley of the shade?
Ah! but Jesus' love illumined,
Every dark and fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet me,
In that way so hard to tread.
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have no doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still.
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust the Father's will.

There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand.
Do it now while life remaineth,
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you home.
Oh the rapture of that meeting,
Oh the joy to see you come.

Roland was my sister Mary's husband. He was as close to being the perfect husband/father/grandfather as one can be.
