You are watching: God saw you getting tired poem long version

A golden heart stopped beatinghard working hands at rest.God broke our hearts to prove to usHe only takes the best.

Version 3

God saw that she was getting tired,A cure was not to be.So he put His arms around herAnd whispered, ”Come with Me.”With tearful eyes, we watched her suffer.And saw her fade away.Although we loved her dearly,We could not make her stay.A golden heart stopped beating.Hard working hands to rest.God broke our hearts to prove to usHe only takes ”the best”

Version 2

God saw you getting tired,When a cure was not to be.So He wrapped his arms around you,and whispered, “come to me.”You didn’t deserve what you went through,So He gave you rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful,He only takes the bestAnd when I saw you sleeping,So peaceful and free from painI could not wish you backTo suffer that again.
