And gently sink away,

And often in our hearts we’ve prayed

That he might longer stay.



There is a light from our household gone,

The voice we loved is still,

A placed is vacant in our house

That never can be filled.



He has reached the joys of heaven,

He is one of the sainted band,

For his head a crown of gold is given,

And a harp is in his hand.



He called his friends all up at night

And bid them all good bye,

And then he vanished from our sight;

To that sweet home on high.
