When My Long Journey Ends
I stood upon the Earth and gazed at the universe,
Flew among the clouds where the eagles glide.

I sailed across the ocean wide and
saw a mountain touch the sky.

I walked through the valley of death many times.

When my long journey ends,
I will come home again.

The light of day shall pass away and
the dark of night will come to me.
I will close my eyes and go to sleep
to lay in the arms of God.
