      Dearest faterm thou hast left us,
      A voice we loved is still;
      A place is vacant in our home,
      Which never can be filled.
      God, in His mercy, has recalled
      The one his love had given,
      And though the body molders here
      His soul is safe in heaven
      One by earth;s ties are broken.
      Though they lay so near our hearts;
      We hope again to meet with father,
      Where we do not have to part.
