How LUCID and BELOVED seem those days of which I Covid,
When memories recall – so tears of Love do Fall
A MELODY so Sweet - my weary heart would beat

When Grandmama would pray, I would praise the DAY.

If I could hear GRANDMAMA pray again.
>>>> E VAMP <<<<<
She OFTEN prayED that I, on LOVE ALONE rely,
And always walk that GLISTING gospel way;
So Trusting is her LOVE, I seek that home above,
Where I shall meet GRAMAMA some glad day.
Within the old home-place - her patient, smiling face
Was always spreading comfort, hope and cheer;
And when she used to sing, to her LORD AND TO HER KING,
It was the songs - the angels loved to hear.
Her work on earth is DONE, the life-crown has been WON,
And she will be at REST - IN PEACE WAY UP above;
And some glad morning she, I know, will welcome me
To that eternal home of peace and love
