11630. My Mother Has Gone On Home

1 My mother has gone on home,
And I am so lonely here;
There’s nothing that seems the same,
Since she is no longer near.

Refrain:
Beautiful mother, gone forever,
Waiting beside life’s crystal river
For the glad coming home of friends
She cherished while here;
Beautiful mother, free from sorrow,
Where I shall join her on the morrow,
Never again the solemn hour
Of parting to fear!

2 How dark seem the days to me,
The sun now forgets to shine
On me, as in days of yore,
For mother in vain I pine! [Refrain]

3 I miss her dear smiling face,
Wherever my footsteps roam;
I’m longing for Heav’n above,
Since mother has gone on home. [Refrain]
