Each time we see the sun go down,
It seems the end of day,
And yet we know the sun is rising somewhere far away,
And when we lose someone we love,
We learn to trust somehow that a new life in a brighter place is just beginning now
A place of grace and peace and joy,
Beyond all time and sorrow,
Where loving hearts who part today
Will meet again tomorrow.
