"Don't Cry for the Horses"

Written by Brenda Riley-Seymore

 
 
 
Don't cry for the horses
That life has set free
A million white horses
Forever to be

Don't cry for the horses
Now in Godís hands
As they dance and they gallop
To a heavenly band

They were ours as a gift
But never to keep
As they close their eyes
Forever to sleep

Their spirits unbound
On silver wings they fly
A million white horses
Against the blue sky

 

 
 
Look up into heaven
You'll see them above
The horses we lost
The horses we loved

Manes and tails flowing
They gallop through time
They were never yours
They were never mine

Don't cry for the horses
They will be back someday
When our time has come
They will show us the way

Do you hear that soft nicker
Close to your ear?
Don't cry for the horses
Love the ones that are here
