Representative Text

1 Another hand is beck'ning us,
Another call is given;
And glows once more with angel steps
The path that leads to heaven.

Be still my heart,
It is thy God!
Pass silently beneath the rod.

2 Unto our Father’s will alone
One thought has reconciled;
That He whose love exceedeth ours
Hath taken home his child. [Refrain]

3 Fold her, O Father, in thine arms,
And let her henceforth be
A messenger of love between
Our human hearts and Thee. [Refrain]
