God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.@Revelation 21:4

B. F. Greenhaw, in Truth and Hope (Hudson, North Carolina: Teachers’ Music Publishing Company, 1919), number 157 (🔊 pdf nwc).

We have loved ones gone before us,
To the peaceful, heav’nly shore,
And they’re happy with their Savior,
Singing praises evermore.

Refrain

Loved ones gone are now rejoicing
Free from sorrow, pain and care;
Blessèd thought, thro Christ we’ll meet them
In that home so bright and fair.

Sad and lonely they have left us,
But our Father’s will be done;
Trusting Him we’ll praise and serve Him,
Till our race on earth is run.

Refrain

O how sweet ’twill be to join them,
In that happy home above;
There to dwell in peace forever,
Sharing our Redeemer’s love.
