Tie the strings to my life , my lord ;
then I am ready to Go!
Just a look at the horses rapidly racing,
that alone will do.
Put me in on the firmest side,
so I shall never fall.
For we must all ride the judgement ,
and its partly down hill.
But never mind the bridges ,
and never mind the sea.
Held fast in an everlasting grace,
by my fate and thee.
Good bye to the life I use to live ,
and the world I used to know.
Kiss my kids for me,
then I am ready to go.
My mother, I truly loved you ,
this I want you to know.
My Friends & Families , especially my wife.
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
for I am not there , I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry ;
I am not there, I did not die.
Hey! I know that you're sad & blue;
I do understand the pain you feel inside.
But, promise me you will have the courage,
to get through this too.
This much I beleive in you.
Today and forvermore;
I will live on in the hearts' of many, not few!
