REST IN PEACE
We shall miss you sadly, mother Miss you in the morning light, Miss you in the starry evening, Miss you in the quiet night.
But we know you’re gently resting From your duties here below, And we feel that you’ll be waiting When we’re called upon to go.
You’ll be watching for your loved one From your home beyond the sky, Through that sunset or the twilight In the near Sweet Bye and Bye.
We shall linger yet a little, Waiting for the call to come; Then in peace we’ll gladly seek you, Happy in your heavenly home.
We have lived the years together, Sharing joys along the way, And the glorious time will come, dear, When we’re home to stay.
When the twilight shadows lengthen, Stretching out across he bay,
You’ll be listening for my call, dear, You will meet me by the way.
Glad reunion! Happy greeting! Never more again to part. I’ll be longing for this meeting, Face to face and heart to heart.
To Mr. A. M. Harriman, From Mrs. J. W. Hommel, Wednesday, Oct. 28, 1925.
