She hath gone from the tri-als and sorrows below,

To that land where the rivers of pleasure do flow;

She hath gone from the trouble and trial of earth,

To that region where joys ev-er-lasting have birth;

She hath gone the bright regions of bliss to explore,

Whither Jesus her Saviour hath entered be-fore.

To the clime of bright glory, the city of light,

To the blessed fruition of' heavenly delight.

She faded in beauty, she faded in youth,

In the springtide of innocence, virtue, and truth,

Like the bud but just opened, then chilled into blight;

Like the bright star of even, obscured by black night,

She lives in the Heaven of heavens above,

Rehearsing the story of Jesus's kind of love;

She lists the sweet music of that blest abode,

And sings hallelujahs of praise to her God.
