1 Calmly she faded as fades the summer,
Sweetly she whispered, "Soon I’ll be there";
Fair was the morning, early departed,
Brighter thy noonday, Heav’n dawns for thee;
So ’twas she faded, as fades the summer,
So ’twas she whispered, "Heav’n dawns for me."

2 Sadly around her, warm tears were falling,
Gently to soothe her, kind friends were near;
Sweetly she murmured, "Cease, cease your weeping,
Heav’ns gate is open, angels are here!
So ’twas she faded, as fades the summer,"
So ’twas she whispered, "Angels are here."

3 Calm as the evening, clear as the morning,
Bright hopes of glory to her were giv’n;
Earth’s charms were fading, angels were singing,
Said she at parting, "Meet me in Heav’n."
So ’twas she faded, as fades the summer,
So ’twas she whispered, "Meet me in Heav’n."

4 Joys of the future home with her Savior,
Where all is peaceful for ever more;
Smiling and cheerful, lisped she to dear ones,
"Come to the Savior, Jesus says come."
So ’twas she faded, as fades the summer,
So ’twas she whispered, "Jesus says come."
