In the passing of this loved one
Wife and daughter now will find
They have lost a loving husband,
And a father, true and kind.

Friends and relatives all loved him,
He was loyal, he was true,
He was ready for the parting,
And we know God loved him, too.

So He took him home to Glory
Where he no more suffers pain,
If we're saved; trust God sincerely,
We shall surely missed again.
