We grew up in a home t’was yours
Filled with your love and warm embrace,
You taught us how to live our lives
In Jesus’ name and in His grace.
Your word was firm, you stood your place
For truth and love and care,
You gave to all who came to you
The impossible you’d dare!
With love you taught us right from wrong
With love you sacrificed
With love you bore your aches and pains
And not one bit you’d sigh.
Yet, your spirit wouldn’t rest
Until you did your best.
And Jesus from His throne above
Was always there to bless.
With pride we raise this tribute
To your name most precious Pearl
We’re proud to be a part of you
To carry out your work.
We pledge to go today in love
As Jesus you did follow
And claim His many promises
Today and not tomorrow.
May God the Father, Son and Spirit
Dwell within your soul
As you did be to each your way
Grandmother, mum and spouse.
And may the divine Spirit
Grant you eternal rest
As you leave your earthly home
To the place you deserve best.
We know you’ll wait for us to come
And share your home as always.
And, now we know the best way there
Is Jesus whom you did follow.
With pride we send you on your way
To where you now belong.
To Paradise – the Promised Land;
To our Eternal Home.
