When a great man is taken from the world, it is hard for us all to come to terms with. When that man is Nelson Mandela, it is even harder to understand. Our hearts go with him in his eternal rest.
Last night a hero passed away.
A saviour to mankind.
Whose strength and courage showed the world
the proper state of mind.
By speaking out against the men
who reigned with iron fist,
your life became an inspiration.
Mandela, you’ll be missed.
The fact that you would not hide your face
the fact that you stood tall with grace.
You’re the reason that the world is free
from apartheid practiced by decree.
The world will mourn your passing on.
We can’t believe that you have gone.
But as you take your final rest,
our hearts go with a man whose blessed.
