Our Darling’s Gone

God He sent a loving angel
And he called our darling home
For he needed another flower
To bloom around the shining throne

But we know that he is happy
Since he left this world below
For he saw his home in heaven
Just before he had to go

He has left our home so lonely
Loneliness you could not know
But we ask that he watch o’er us
And give comfort to our soul

He’s at rest on a lonely mountain
In a deep and narrow gave
And we thank our loving savior
For the comfort that he gave

Now we’re here so sad and lonely
In this wicked world alone
Just a window and poor orphans
In our little mountain home
