BID NOT FAREWELL

WHEN ONE YOU'VE LOVED HAS LEFT THIS LIFE
AND YOUR WORLD SEEMS TORN APART
YOU MUST REMEMBER THEY WILL NEVER LEAVE
THEY ARE SAFE WITHIN YOUR HEART

FOR LIFE GOES ON BEYOND THIS SPHERE
TO A GREATER EXISTENCE ABOVE
AND THE ONES WHO HAVE GONE CAN HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS
CARRIED ON THE WINGS OF LOVE

FOR GOD IS AWARE OF EVERYTHING
ALL EXISTENCE IS FROM HIS HAND
AND JUST AS WE LEFT HIM FOR THE KNOWLEDGE OF LIFE
WE MUST RETURN TO HIM TO UNDERSTAND

LOSS IS NOT OURS WHEN A SOUL PASSES ON
FOR THAT BEING WILL NEVER CEASE
THE WARMTH OF THEIR MEMORY IS NEVER GONE
THEY LIVE IN YOUR HEART AND IN THE KINGDOM OF PEACE

SO BID NOT FAREWELL LOVE EXISTS FOREVER
IN THIS WORLD AND BEYOND
BUT BID GOOD MORNING IN ANOTHER REALM
AND THE BEGINNING OF LIFE MOVING ON

FOR WE'LL ALL MEET AGAIN IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD
WHERE DEATH WE WILL NO LONGER FEAR
AS IT BECOMES THE DOOR TO ETERNAL LIFE
WHERE GOD AND HIS WISDOM ARE CLEAR...
