Safely Home

I am home in Heaven, dear ones;

Oh, so happy and so bright;

There is perfect joy and beauty

In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,

Every restless tossing passed;

I am now at peace forever,

Safely home in Heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly

Trod the valley of the shade?

Oh! but Jesus’ arm to lean on,

Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,

For I love you dearly still;

Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,

Pray to trust our Father’s Will.

There is work still waiting for you,

So you must not idly stand;

Do it now, while life remaineth,

You shall rest in Jesus’ land.

When that work is all completed,

He will gently call you Home;

Oh, the rapture of that meeting,

Oh, the joy to see you come!

Cathal will always be remembered by his son and daughter Oisín and Olivia, father Seamus, sisters and brother, Meabh, Seán and Eibhlis brothers-in-law, sister-in-law, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends.
