"If Love Could Have Saved you"

It breaks our heart to lose you, the day God called you home

Part of us went with you, you did not go alone

A million times we've longed for you

A milllion times we've cried

If love could have saved you, you would have never died

We just can't know what lies ahead, from day to passing day

What changes God is planning in his wide and loving way

We just can't know why our sorrow has to be

Why we lose the one we need and love so specially

We just can't know but we can trust and faith can help us find

our way to those tomorrows that will bring us peace of mind.
