Dear Lord and Father of mankind – Verse 251

4. Drop thy still dews of quietness, Till all our strivings cease :Take from our souls the strain and stress, And let our ordered lives confess The beauty of thy peace.

5. Breathe through the heats of our desire Thy coolness and thy balm; Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire; Speak through the earthquake wind and fire, O still small voice of calm.

He bade no one a last farewell – Verse 239

He bade no one a last farewell,
He raised his hand to none,
His spirit flew before we knew,
That he from us had gone.
 
He never failed to do his best,
His heart was true and tender,
He worked, and toiled for those he loved,
And left them to remember.
 
Along the road to yesterday,
That leads us straight to you
Are memories of happy days
Together we once knew.
 
May he rest in peace dear Jesus,
In Thy Heavenly home above;
With the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
In His own eternal love.

I’m Free – Verse 241

Don't grieve for me for now I'm free;
I'm following the path God laid for me,
I took His hand when I heard Him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
 
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.
 
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes these things we too shall miss.
 
Be not burdened with times of sorrow;
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savoured much;
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
 
Perhaps my life seemed all too brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.

He never thought when leaving home – Verse 243

He never thought when leaving home,
He would never more return,
That he in death so soon would sleep,
And leave us here alone.
 
A sudden call from God on high,
You had no chance to say goodbye,
Without farewell you fell asleep,
But memories of you we will always keep;
And those who loved you dearly,
Are the ones who won't forget.
 
No farewells were spoken,
We did not say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why;
But we always will remember,
Our whole life through,
The last words we had with you.
 
We never fail to pray for you,
We never cease to care,
We wish we could go home again,
And find you waiting there;
To the Throne of Christ he will guide us,
And with us he will stand,
And that golden chain will be linked again,
Locked by Christ's Own hands.
