Am Free


Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
to follow the path God made for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call.
I turned my back and left it all.

Am Free


Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
to follow the path God made for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
to love, to laugh, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
for I found peace at last, that day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembering joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with hearts of sorrow.
My wish for you is the hope of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much,
good friends, good times,
a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed much too brief,
don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wants me now --- He's set me free.
