It’s OK!

By Steven W. Perry c-2003

It’s OK to leave us
We know you’d done your best
You’d worked so hard for us down here
Now it’s time for you to rest
Your loved one’s gone on before you
Could hardly wait for you to show
and though we’ll miss you so greatly
It’s ok for you to go

It’s OK! It’s OK!
You’d been fighting this for so long
Now it’s OK!
If we could have made a choice
We’d of loved for you to stay
But the Father has called you home now
and it’s OK! It’s OK!

It’s OK! Go be with your father
Go visit your sister and brother
Hold your loved ones close again
Where there’s no heartache no pain no sin
and when you visit with mama
Tell her I can’t wait to see her again
but most of all when you see Jesus
Thank him for forgiving our sin

For he has not despised or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden his face from him but has listened to his cry for help.
