In Memory of
Mrs. Amanda Clem BT A. C. W. Our sainted mother took a journey far To a blissful country of heavenly light We know the gates were standing ajar And the angels received her, all dressed in white. What a grand reception that must have been, When she met that great host in the kingdom of God, Such a pleasant reunion of loved ones and friends And the feast they’d prepared was the love of the Lord. 1 fancy she’s waiting for de^F ones below When they have finished their course ia this God given land, If they trust in their Savior to heaven they’ll go With the millions of angels that take their stand. Let’s all strive to meet her in man sions above And oh what rejoicing in heaven there’ll be, Hosanna! Hosanna! how divine is His love As we reign in His presence eternally.
