Peacefully sleeping, resting at last, the world’s weary troubles and trials are past;

In silence she suffered, in patience she bore, till God called her home to suffer no more.

In heaven we know she is happy, and as we go on each year;

Please tell her, Lord she is in our thoughts although she is not here.
