"I've Only Moved Away"

When my life on earth is over,
My body is cold and still.
Do not grieve because I left you,
Just remember it was God will.

All My Suffering will be over,
Every trial and every test.
God has called and I have answered,
Don't weep for I'll be at rest.

Only ask yourself this question,
"Am I ready to met him There?"
In Heaven so bright so fair.

When you pass to view my body,
Remember it's just a house of clay,
Jesus has built for me a mansion and,
I'VE ONLY MOVED AWAY.
