Lucy A. Hall

In Memory of Mrs. John Bedell.

A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.

God in his wisdom has recalled
The boon His love has given;
And though the body moulders here,
The soul is safe in Heaven.

How slender is life's silver cord!
How soon 'tis broken here!
Each moment brings a parting word,
And many a falling tear.

And though these years to mortals given,
Are filled with grief and pain.
There is a hope -- the hope of heaven,
Where loved ones meet again.

'Tis hard to break the tender cord,
When love has bound the heart,
'Tis hard, so hard to speak the words,
We must forever part.

Dearest loved on we have lain thee,
In the peaveful grave's embrace,
But thy memory will be cherished,
'Till we see thy heavenly face.

We miss thee from our home, dear mother,
We miss thee from thy place,
A shallow o'er our life is cast,
We miss the sunshine of thy face.

We miss thy kind and willing hand,
Thy fond and earnest care,
Our home is dark without thee ---
We miss thee everywhere.
