562. Not now, but in the coming years,
It may be in the better land,
We'll read the meaning of our tears
And there some time we'll understand.
563. Nothing can ever take away
The love a heart holds dear.
Fond memories linger every day
Remembrance keeps him near.
564. O blessed little sunbeam
O child of love and prayer,
We give thee to the keeping
Of the tender Shepherd's care.
565. O happy hours we once enjoyed,
How sweet their memory still
But death has left a loneliness
The world can never fill.
566. Oft and oft our thoughts do wander
To the grave not far away,
Where we laid our dear mother
Just (nine) years ago today.
567. One year has passed since that sad day
When one we loved was called away,
God took him home - it was His will;
Within our hearts he liveth still.
568. Only a memory of bygone days,
And a sigh for a face unseen;
But a constant feeling that God alone
Knows just what should have been.
569. Past her suffering, past her pain,
Cease to weep for tears are vain;
She who suffered is at rest,
Gone to heaven with the blest.
570. Peaceful be thy rest, dear mother.
It is sweet to breathe thy name;
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
571. Peacefully sleeping, resting at last,
The world's weary troubles and trials are past;
In silence she suffered, in patience she bore.
Till God called her home to suffer no more.
572. Remembrance is a golden chain
Death tries to break, but all in vain;
To have, to love, and then to part,
Is the greatest sorrow of one's heart.
The years may wipe out many things.
But this they wipe out never
The memory of those happy days
When we were all together.
573. Sad and sudden was the call.
So dearly loved by one and all;
His memory is as dear today,
As in the hour he passed away.
574. Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe on His loving breast.
575. She was only a little white rosebud.
A sweet little flower from birth;
God took her home to heaven
Before she was soiled on earth.
576. Some day we hope to meet again.
Some day we know not when,
To clasp his hand in the better land.
Never to part again.
577. A Sweet little flower of heavenly birth,
She was too fair to bloom on earth.
578. Sweet to remember him who once was here,
And who, though absent, is just as dear.
579. Sweet memories will linger forever.
Time cannot change them, It's true;
Years that may come cannot sever
My loving remembrance of you.
580. Suffer little children to come unto Me.
581. Sunshine fades and shadows fall
But sweet remembrance outlasts all.
582. Take her in Thine arms, dear Lord.
And ever let her be
A messenger of love
Between our hearts and Thee.
583. That unselfish life -
It has not died.
584. The dearest mother, the kindest friend,
One of the best whom God could lend.
Loving, thoughtful, gentle and true.
Always willing a kind act to do.
585. The depths of sorrow we cannot tell
Of the loss of one we loved so well;
And while she sleeps a peaceful sleep
Her memory we shall always keep.
586. The loneliness without you.
The ache deep in our hearts;
We've nothing left but memories.
With them we'll never part.
587. The memory of his dear wee ways
Will linger with us all our days.
Sweetest flower, too sweet to stay.
God took him home to show us the way.
588. The rolling stream of life rolls on,
But still the vacant chair
Recalls the love, the voice, the smile
Of the one who once sat there.
589. The world may change from year to year
And friends from day to day,
But never will the one I loved
From memory pass away.
590. There is a link death cannot sever.
Love and remembrance last forever.
591. There is a mother who misses you sadly
And finds the time long since you went.
And I think of you daily and hourly
But try to be brave and content.
But the tears that I shed are in silence
And I breathe a sigh of regret,
For you were mine, and I remember,
Though all the world forget.
592. There's sad but sweet remembrance.
There's a memory fond and true;
There's a token of my love, dear
And a heartache still for you.
593. Those whom we love go out of sight,
But never out of mind;
They are cherished in the hearts
Of those they leave behind.
594. Three little words, "Forget me not."
Don't seem much, but mean a lot.
Just a memory fond and true,
To show, dear mother, we think of you.
595. "Thy will be done" seems hard to say
When one we loved has passed away,
Some day, perhaps, we'll understand.
When we meet again in that better land.
596. Today recalls sad memories
Of a dear mother gone to rest,
And the one who thinks of her today
Is the one who loved her best.
597. To have, to hold, and then to part.
Is the greatest sorrow of our hearts.
598. To memory ever dear;
If love could save, thou hadst not died.
599. Two little hands are resting.
A loving heart is still.
A little son we loved is waiting
For us just over the hill.
600. We cannot clasp your hand father dear,
Your face we cannot see.
But let this little token tell
That we still remember thee.
601. We cannot think of them as dead
Who walk with us no more
Along the path of life we tread;
They have but gone before.
602. We cannot, Lord, Thy purpose see,
But all is well that's done by Thee.
603. We have only a memory, dear mother,
We cherish our whole life through;
But the sweetness will live forever
As we treasure the memory of you.
604. We know that she is happy
In our Saviour's home above.
Growing fairer as she lingers
In the sunshine of His love.
605. We mourne for her in silence.
No eyes can see us weep.
But many a silent tear is shed
While others are asleep.
606. We think of him in silence,
No eyes can see us weep.
But still within our aching hearts
His memory we keep.
607. We who loved you sadly miss you,
As it dawns another year;
In our lonely hours of thinking
Thoughts of you are ever near.
608. What would I give to clasp his hand.
His happy face to see.
To hear his voice and see his smile
That meant so much to me.
609. What would we give her hand to clasp,
Her patient face to see.
To hear her voice, to see her smile,
As in the days that used to be.
But some sweet day we''ll meet again
Beyond the toll and strife,
And clasp each other's hand once more.
In heaven, that happy life.
610. When the dewy night was fading,
And the sky in beauty smiled,
The angels came into our garden
And picked our sweetest flower.
611. When days are dark and friends are few,
Dear mother, how we think of you.
Friends are friends if they are true
We lost our best friend when we lost you.
612. When we are sad and lonely
And everything goes wrong,
We seem to hear you whisper,
"Cheer up and carry on."
Each time we see your photo
You seem to smile and say,
"Don't cry I'm only sleeping
We'll meet again someday."
613. While you, dear parent, rest and sleep,
Your loving memory we'll always keep.
614. Wonderful memories woven in gold.
These are the memories we tenderly hold.
Deep in our hearts his memory is kept.
To love, to cherish and never forget.
615. You could not say goodbye to us
You could not clasp our hand;
But God has taken one we loved
To His realms so grand.
616. You left sweet memories to blossom.
Bearing fruit for the years to come.
In the lives of those who loved you.
Precious memories of days that are gone.
617. You oftimes said I'd miss you.
Those words have proved too true.
I lost my best, my dearest friend.
Dear (John), when I lost you.
618. Your heart was the dearest in all the wide world.
Your love the best to recall.
For no one on earth could take your place.
You are still the dearest of all.
619. You are not forgotten, sister.
Nor will you ever be.
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.
620. Upright and just in all his ways.
Faithful and true to the end of his days.
In silence he suffered, in patience he bore.
Till God called him home to suffer no more.
