Do Not Fret
Do not fret my life for me,
I am the wind, I am the Sea.
I am the tree that gives you shade,
I am the grass from blade to blade
Think of me and I will be,
The gift of God that life does bring.
For I am there right by your side,
To cry and talk and even sigh.
So Think of me and I will be,
The gift of life- Eternity.
Then look for me and there I'll be,
The star that shines for all to see.
So think of me and I will be
Your gift from God,
Your Heavenly Seed.
