In memory of our loving mother
What tho she could not even
And tho' her tongue refused to
She still could hope and praise
and pray
Altho her eye sight grew so dim
She still could see to follow him.
And tho' her hearing was not as
As in the past, it may have been.
She still could hear her Savior
He whispered softly, "This is the
way." 17-1p
