Representative Text

1 Mother’s gone to yonder city,
Gone to be with angels fair,
And I hope some day to meet her,
With the other loved ones there.

Refrain:
Yes, we’ll meet our sainted mother,
In that home beyond the skies,
There to live with her forever
Where we’ll speak no sad goodbyes.

2 Thou art gone from us, dear mother,
Nevermore on earth to be;
Though we miss thy gentle presence,
Heaven’s love we wish for thee. [Refrain]

3 Little ones, be not discouraged,,
Follow Jesus all the way;
There’ll be gladness for the faithful
In that great and glorious day. [Refrain]

4 While on earth, she lived for Jesus,
Led her children in the right;
When our journey here is ended,
There with mother we’ll unite. [Refrain]
