He has gone across the river to the shore of evergreen – And we long to see his dear face but the river flows between.
Someday, sometime we shall see the face we loved so well – Someday we’ll clasp his hand and never say farewell. – From our happy home and circle God has taken one we loved – She is borne from sin and sorrow to a nobler rest above.
No one knows how much we miss her none but aching hearts can tell – Lost on earth but found in heaven Jesus doeth all things well. – (In Loving Memory Dad)
Dad is such a special word a word that brings to mind – A big warm smile, a helping hand a way of being kind.
Devotion to the family a word of patience too – Dad is such a special word because it stands for you. – It is sad to walk the road alone instead of side by side – But to all there comes a moment when the ways of life divide.
You gave me years of happiness then came sorrow and tears – But you left me beautiful memories I will treasure through the years. – Two tired eyes are sleeping two willing hands are still – For one who suffered far too much is resting in God’s will.
You never said goodbye to us perhaps it’s just as well – We never could have said goodbye to one we loved so well. – Though your smile is gone forever and your hand we cannot touch – Still we have so many memories of the ones we loved so much.
Your memory is our keepsake with which we’ll never part – God has you in His keeping we have you in our hearts. – So many things have happened since you were called away – So many things to share with you had you been left to stay.
Every day in some small way memories of you come our way – Though absent, you are ever near still missed, loved, and always dear. –
It’s been years since you’ve been gone – But in our hearts you still live on.
Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same – But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.
You are not forgotten. – We think of you in silence we often speak your name – But all we have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your resting place we visit and put flowers there with care – But no one knows the heartache as we turn and leave you there. – Life is a beautiful memory his death is a silent grief – He sleeps in God’s beautiful garden in sunshine of perfect peace.
I miss him oh so much but realize God knew best – He let me have him many years then gently bid him rest. – Oft in the stilly night ere slumbers chains hath bound me. Fond memory brings the light of other days around me.
The smiles, the tears of childhood’s years the words of love then spoken. The eyes that shone now dimmed and gone The cheerful hearts now broken. – We often think of bygone days when we were all together – The family chain is broken now but memories will live forever.
To us, she has not gone away nor has she traveled far – Just entered God’s eternal home and left the gate ajar. – I’ve lost my sole companion a life linked with my own – No one knows how I miss him as I travel my life alone. – I never said goodbye, dear but that was just as well – I never could have said goodbye to one I loved so well. – Alone, but never quite alone I face an empty chair – But sometimes in the silence I imagine YOU are there.
My companion for so many years no longer here with me – And yet in some mysterious way you keep me company. – (In Loving Memory Dad)
If we had all the world to give we’d give it, yes, and more – To hear his voice, see his smile and greet him at the door.
But all we can do, dear Dad is go and tend your grave – And leave behind tokens of love to the best Dad God made. – (In Loving Memory Dad)
Dad is gone but not forgotten and, as dawns another year – In lonely hours of thinking thoughts of him, are always near.
Many think the wound is healed but little they know the sorrow That lies in the heart concealed.
