Gods Gardner

You planted many gardens
And the bounty you would share
And now the Lord has called you home
To tend the gardens there

The countless seeds that you have sown
The many harvests reaped
The memories you have given us
Forever ours to keep

Countless are the numbers
Of the seeds that you have sown
Not only in the soil
But in the hearts of those youíve known

And now you tend the gardens
In the place where you belong
As the angels serenade you
With your favorite bluegrass songs

Though you are no longer with us
Forever memories will remain
And there is comfort found in knowing
That our loss is heavens gain
