One more bright sheaf has been garnered
In that happy home on high,
Where the heavenly hosts bade welcome
To our loved one free from sigh.
Or a sorrow which the earth gave
As he tarried with us here—
Come, we hope to be with Jesus—
Resting peaceful with him there,
Tho’ he left us here in weeping
Know we that he lives again
In this happy home above us,
Singing Heaven’s glad refrain.
Welcomed by the one before him,
Reunited there for aye;
There two loved and happy souls are
Watching for the coming day.
When the whole family will there be gathered,
To be parted never more;
There to swell the choral anthem,
As on earth the days of yore.
Then we know they’re watching, waiting,
E’en to catch the first faint light
Of the beacon of the boatman
Who will ferry thro’ the night.
O’er the dark and stormy waters,
Thro’ death’s stormy, silent shade—
We, who’re left to mourn the loved ones,
Still remembering Him who said:
“Suffer the little ones to come unto me,”
With a pure and holy life given,
“And forbid them not,
“For such is the Kingdom of Heaven.”
And at death’s silent, white robed angel
Cast a heaven-born smile on him
Who has left us, I know he said
“The Lord hath need of thee; come unto Him.”
