"Our mother, dear, has been called home
Called to receive the prize
She's waiting for us now in bliss
We'll meet beyond the skies
We miss her in the home each day
We miss her love and care
We miss her council wise and good
We miss her voice in prayer
Her place is vacant in the church
Where all these many years
She served and suffered, sang, and prayed
'Mid sorrow pain and tears
Her work was always wrought in faith
She loved in God's love
Was always patient in her hope
Of seeing him above
She never was discouraged tho oft' times the way looked dim
She always rested in her God
Waiting patiently for Him
Her delight was in the Lord
And He gave her heart's desire--
For she saw her prayers all answered
Then was called to "Come up Higher"
We crave a double portion
Of her love and holy power
That, never weary, never faint
We may walk with God each hour
She lives in those she won for God
Although from us she's gone
She's resting from her labors
And her works do follow on."
