"At Rest"

Oh, how sadly we shall miss her,
Her kind voice, we'll hear no more,
She has gone to be with Jesus,
Over on the other Shore,
Sad and lonely will the days be,
As they flit from year to year,
For we never shall forget her,
Though her form shall not behere,
And sorrow at her going,
We can find no words to tell,
But there's comfort in the knowing,
That "He doeth all things well".
