I am at home in Heaven, dear ones,

Oh, so happy and so bright,

There is perfect joy and beauty,

In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,

Every restless yearning passed,

I am now at peace forever,

Safely home in Heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly,

Trod the valley of the shade?

Oh but Jesus’ love illumined,

Every dark and fearful glade.

And He came, Himself to meet me,

In that way so hard to tread,

And with Jesus' arm to lean on,

Could I have one doubt or dread.

Then you must not grieve so sorely,

For I love you dearly still;

Try to look beyond earth's shadows,

Pray to trust our Father's Will.

There is work still waiting for you,

So you must not idly stand,

Do it now while life remaineth,

You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,

He will gently call you Home.

Oh, the rapture of that meeting,

Oh, the joy to see you come.

Dogs Come when Called

"Dogs come when called. Cats take a message and get back to you."

"Of course, every cat is really the most beautiful woman in the room."
