Bulla's Farewell - Poem by George Capron

I'VE HEARD OF DEATH AND DYING
OF SCARY PEOPLE WRAPPED IN SIN
OF LOTS OF NOISE AND CRYING
FROM THOSE WHO ARE GOING IN

TODAY I SAW A MAN HAPPY
WHO HAD ENOUGH OF PAIN
HE SAID LORD MAKE IT SNAPPY
I WANNA LEAVE THIS PLAIN

LORD I WANT TO BE WITH JESUS
I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF HERE
GOOD FRIENDS HAVE COME TO PLEASE US
COME LORD GUIDE ME OVER THERE

I SEE THE LIGHT OF HEAVEN
THE SAINTS ARE IN THE DISTANCE
I FEEL AS LIGHT AS LEVEN
T'IS JOY, THERE'LL BE NO RESISTANCE

I FEEL MY SOULD DRIFTING OFF
I SEE THE FRIENDLY FACES
AS I MAKE MY WAY ALOFT
THERE'LL BE NO GRIMACES

JOY WAITS ON THE OTHER SHORE
I SEE THEIR HAPPY FACES
I COULDN'T ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE
AND I WOULD NEVER TRADE PLACES

MY CORSE YOU'LL LAY IN DELECTABLE BAY
IN THE LAND OF MY BIRTH
WHERE MY GRANDFATHER LAY
I TRUST THAT MY LIFE WAS ONE OF WORTH

FAREWELL DEAR FRIENDS ONE AND ALL
I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU CAME
WHEN YOU HEAR THE CALL
NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME
