Breathe in
Breathe out

The race is almost over
Your work is nearly done
You’ll no longer need Earth’s sweet breath
To walk, to dance, to run

For all the years of labor
And every suffer-some day
For all the times of sweat and tears
And every moment of crippling fears
“Well done”, you hope He’ll say

Breathe in
Breathe out

The gold you’ll receive
In the form of crown
Is not a medal you’ll keep

For in the presence of God
You’ll lay it all down
And at His feet you will weep

Breathe in
Breathe out

One foot before the other
Soon you’re knocking at His door
Take one last glance around you
And take a breath once more

Breathe in

You know that we will miss you
But we’ll see you one day
Our eyes aren’t dry
As we say good-bye

And watch Love take your breath away

Breathe out

” Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.”
– Psalm 116:15
