THE DAY YOU TOOK OUR DAD AWAY
The gates of heaven opened wide
The angels lined up side by side,
For a special guest was on his way
The day you took our Dad away.
God called his name so softly
That only he could hear;
And no-one heard the footsteps
Of the angels drawing near.
The angels sang ‘Amazing Grace,’
Our Lord came down and touched his face;
He held your hand and whispered low
“Come with me; it’s time to go.”
So put your arms around him, Lord,
And keep him forever safe,
For he was someone special
And can never be replaced.
