Her Life On Earth
As a newborn child,
Lying in its pretty baby bed;
All cute and precious
And waiting to be fed ...

As a very small child,
With love all around;
Her days were filled
With joy and happy sounds.

As a sweet and caring girl,
With freckles and curls;
She met a young lad,
Who entered her world ...

As a lovely young maiden,
She obeyed her Lord;
Kept studying, kept praying,
Kept wielding the sword ...

As a radiant bride,
She took on the role
Of a helpmeet, a mother, and friend;
The best to behold.

As a devoted Christian woman,
She lived what she taught;
Always Jesus commands,
She sought ...

As an old woman,
Tired from her labor.
She lay upon her bed,
Thinking of God's promises ...

This is what she said,
"Take me home, Lord, take me home!"
