A Dear One from Us Has Been Taken
Adear one from us has been taken
To that unknown world up above
And our family with sorrow is shaken
When we think of this dear one we loved.
She was aged and poorly, but willing
To do things we wished her to do,
And grandmother up there in heaven
Had a heart that was honest and true.
She was a jolly good soul in her childhood
She could joke, be cheerful and blue,
But since she had grown older
She was careworn, but patient and true.
A vision to me has been given
Of grandmother there in her grave,
Of peaceful and happy contentment
Please, God, cause our hearts to be brave.
She'll pray for us up in heaven
As loved ones always should do,
We loved her, dear Lord, and our wish is
To meet her in heaven with you.
