In Jimís life He was always pining longing to see Heavens Blissful Light
Waiting longing and ever sighing to be free from sorrows in His life.
To be free from life Sorrows and Anguish in a world where sin does strive
In His life He languished, He knew that after death
He would deliverance win
He now joins His family in Heaven
He knew they would be together again
May the good Lord show Him mercy on His soul forever so dear
And grant Him Eternal rest from earthís earthly pains
Send down your Heavenly lights upon Him
Place Him Lord among the blest.
With each beam of Heavenly radiance
In His happy days of peaceful rest. He left a world of sin and strife
With His music and sounds He left behind.
The sweet memories will be remembered in this life.
Material things is gone from sight
He now lives in Godís Paradise. Birds keep singing in the trees above Him
In His silent grave where He now lies
Intimate Jim I will never forget you
In the Heavens we will be meeting face to face
Years will come and years will go
For you Sweet Gentle Jim my Love for You will Forever Flow.
Sleep on in Peaceful Sleep in Rest with Godís Love You surely Win
You are still to me the Very,Very Best.
