Lyrics Eliza R Roxcy Snow, Music by George Careless, Arranged by Joan Lisonbee Sowards
Thou dost not weep to weep alone; The broad bereavement seems to fall Unheeded and unfelt by none; He was beloved, beloved by all.
'Tis well with our departed one; His heaven lit lamp was shining bright, And when his mortal day went down, His spirit fled where reigns no night.
'Tis meet to die as he has died, He smiled amid death's conquered gloom, While angels waited by his side, To bear a kindred spirit home. He has gone back home.
