A thousand old familiar things
Within our childhood home
Speak of that absent cherished one
Who never more may come.

Fond memories of thee
But would we call thee back again
We mourn but thou art free.

For thou hast gained a brighter home
And death's cold stream is past
Thine are the joys at God's right hand
That shall for ever last.

A crown is on thy peaceful brow
Thine eye the King joys doth see
Thy is with the seraphs now
We mourn but thou art true.

His mind was tranquil and serene
No terror in his looks was seen
His saviours smile dispeld the gloom
And smoothed his passage to the tomb.

Weep not for her who's now at rest
Where care and pain no more annoy
Her spirit smiles from that bright shore
And softly whispers weep no more.
