As our mind’s turn back in memory,
through the ways now passed and gone,
our thoughts come tumbling round us
on a dear one we have known.
She has gone to be with Jesus
and we miss her smiling face
in fancy we can see her
in that precious Holy place.
May we place anew our service,
in the work she loved to do
ever trusting in our Savior
and I know He’ll see us through.
Sister Newberg, you have left us
and our loss is Heaven’s gain
and we know where you have gone,
there will never more be pain.
