Servant of God well done
Thy glorious warfares past, the race is won,
and thou art crowned at last, wtih saints
enthroned on high, Thou dost thy Lord proclaim,
and still the to God salvation cry, salvation
to the Lamb.

Life is a span, a fleeting hour,
how soon the vapor flies.
Man is a tender, trainsient flower
that e'en in blooming dies

Dear mother,
Lone are our hearts, and sad the hours since thy sweet face is gone,
but Oh: A brighter home than ours, in Heaven is now thine own.
Then let our sorrows cease to flow - God has recalled his own:
and let our hearts in every woe, still say, Thy will be done.
