Our mother has left us
Oh, can it be true,
One has been taken
That was loved like you?
Her trials were many.
Heavy was her cross,
She bore them with patience,
His gain is our loss.
The time went so fast,
The years seemed so few
But we're thankful to Jesus
We had a mother like you.
To sleep we leave her,
To peace and at lest.
The parting was painful,
But God knows best.
