God Took Another Angel Home
You laid there in that hospital bed;
You tried so hard to hold on.
God was calling you home. He needed
Another angel to help pour out the rain.
Tears have fallen, hearts where shattered,
But it was time for you to fly home.
Your loved ones came to say their last goodbyes,
To tell you they loved you and that you will be forever missed.
As your heartbeat stopped and your eyes slowly closed
God took another angel home.
