I walk through the door with a smile on my face,

For I know that I am going to a far better place.

Prepared for me by a God of love,

Who sent his son Jesus from the heaven above,

To show us the way, the truth, and the life,

Where there will be no more suffering, sorrow, or strife.

So sing no sad songs for me I say,

This is not the end, but the Beginning today.

Of Life everlasting on that far away shore,

and reunion with loved ones who have gone on before.
