Representative Text

1 Mother’s gone far, far away,
Gone to dwell with saints for aye;
Safe in Heav’n, a crown to wear,
’Mid the scenes so bright and fair.

Refrain:
Yes, we’ll meet our sainted mother,
In the home so far away,
When we cross death’s silent river,
Reach the land of endless day.

2 When we placed her in the grave,
Back to earth the dear form gave,
Grief was ours no tongue can tell—
’Twas so sad, that last farewell! [Refrain]

3 Will you meet her in that land,
Clasp again her gentle hand?
There our Savior reigns alone,
Parting hours are never known. [Refrain]
