“Percy saw a hand we could not see that beckoned him away, He heard a voice we could not hear that said he would not stay.
God saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb;
He gently closed those loving eyed and whispered, “peace be thine.”
The weary hours, the days of pain the sleepiness nights are passed.
The ever-patient worn-out frame;
Percy found sweet rest at last.
