Oh sweet love that’s now been taken,
Back to thy loving care,
Their life on earth you lent us,
To enrich ours while they’re here.
And now they are returned,
Once again were on our own,
Give strength, and light our path lord,
In a world that’s filled with wrongs.
We know you have a purpose,
Yet to us it seems unclear.
But faith in you eternal,
Will help to ease our fears.
And when our time must surely come,
To meet you at the end,
To dwell in peace forever,
And to meet our love again.
