Life Well Lived
Life Well Lived A life well lived is a precious gift
Of hope and strength and grace,
From someone who has made our world
A brighter, better place
It’s filled with moments,
sweet and sad With smiles and sometimes tears,
With friendships formed a
and good times shared
And laughter through the years.
A life well lived is a legacy
Of joy and pride and pleasure,
A living, lasting memory
Our grateful hearts will treasure
God saw you getting tired,
and a cure was not meant to be.
So He put His arms around you,
and whispered, "come with me."
With tearful eyes we watched you
As we say you pass away;
Although we loved you deeply,
We could not make you stay.
Your golden heart stopped beating
Hard-working hands at rest;
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
