Tiny, soft and ever so light
Little bird it’s time to take flight
Loved ones singing a lullaby
Fly to the heavens up to the sky
Don’t worry lovely little bird
Where you’re going pain is not heard
Up in the heavens, your tears will be dry
Your heavenly father awaits in the sky
He watched you sing through your pain
We heard you whisper his glorious name
You spoke of the love he had for you
Now it’s time to make your debut
Fly to the heavens little bird
Where angels are now sweetly heard
Singing Hallelujahs and glorious praise
As you enter his wonderful gates.
Goodbye lovely little bird
Your beautiful song has been heard
The heavens await your new arrival
Our good-byes will never be final.
Around you, the angels are swirling
Sparkling white dress you are twirling
Glancing across the crystal sea
Jesus has come to set you free.
Goodbye songbird and good night
Your pain is over, your love has been bright
You sang to us a beautiful tune
Rest now songbird, we’ll see you soon.
