Oh. darling Lillian, thy gentle voice
Thy warm, true heart is still,
And on thy pale and peaceful face
Is resting death's cold chill.
Thy hands are clasped upon thy
We have kissed thy marble brow,
And in our aching hearts we know,
We haven't our darling Lillian now.
One precious to our heart has gone,
The sweet voice we loved is still,
The place made vacant in our home
Can never more be filled.
Lonely the house, and sad the hours
Since our dear little one has gona,
But, oh, a brighter home than ours
In heaven is now her own.
Through all pain at times she'd
A smile of heavenly birth,
She said often times she wanted to
And when the angels called her,
she smiled farewell to earth.
Heaven retaineth now our treasure,
Earth the lonely casket keeps,
And though in earth the body lies
The soul is safe in heaven.
Grieve not fond loving parents,
For no more to you the little lamb
She was a precious flower for heav
Jesus knew and took her home.
Yet again we hope to meet thee
When the day of life is fled;
And in heaven with joy to great thee,
Where no farewell tears are shed.
