HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST

God saw you getting tired

And a cure was not to be

So He put his arm around you

And He whispered "Come To Me."

 

A golden heart stopped beating 

A precious soul at rest 

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best 

 

With tearful eyes we watched you 

And saw you pass away 

And though we loved you dearly 

We could not make you stay 

 

A golden heart stopped beating

A precious soul at rest 

God broke our hearts to prove to us 

He only takes the best
