God has called our precious darling
from this world of sin and care,
and she left to be with Jesus,
in that home so bright and fair.
Our hearts are crushed and broken
as we try to understand
why the one we loved so dearly
should be needed in that land.
God had blessed her with many talents
which were used alone for him
and she loved her precious Savior
who had cleansed her heart from sin.
In fancy we can see her
as she mingles with the throng
gazing on the face of Jesus
singing glad redemptions song.
And we catch the glorious music
as she plays her harp of gold,
how the angel choir must listen
to the sweetest story ever told.
Yes sweet-heart we truly miss you
but our loss is heavens gain
someday we shall go to meet you
where we’ll never part again.
