Don't weep for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God has chosen for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
My life's been full, I've savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee,
God wanted me now, He set me free.
