Mother, thy work is done; One earth thy race is run, Thy crown is won.
Rest thou serene and sweet, At our dear Savior's feet, Until again we meet in that bright home!
Mother we miss you here, Thou hast been always dear to every heart.
But soon we'll follow thee, Home with our Lord to be, Thy happy face to see, For evermore!
Mother farewell till then; How long we cannot tell Ere we shall meet.
Bright will that morning be, With thee and Christ to see, Ever in glory be; No more to part!
