From the time I was conceived God had for me a plan
He wanted me to get involved to help my fellow man
I know some were against it but God knows what is best
Now I am at home with him and have perfect peace and rest
Heaven is so beautiful I'm walking streets of gold
Now I'm serving others along with the saints of old
I know some still have anger about the way I died
But God sees and bottles every tear you've cried
As difficult as it may be please don't hold a grudge
Remember this my loved ones God alone will judge
Please don't be sad and mourn for me I'm doing what I love
Serving God and guarding you from heaven up above
