A house in which to end my days.
Goodbye it says to all,
For here at last I am content
Behind my garden wall.
The name I gave it says it all,
How still, at peace, and blessed,
How glad am I to know such joy,
To be by love possessed.
That final farewell anthem,
When it is heard at last,
Will sound around these humble walls
Where present meets the past.
For I have lived a life I loved,
Loved the path I’ve trod.
Amen was written on my heart
In this my House of God.
