Our Darlin’s Gone

print

God he sent a loving angel
And he called our darlin home
For he needed another flower
To live around the shinin 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

Now he left our home so lonely
Loneliness no one could know
But we ask God to watch o’er us
And give us comfort to our soul

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

Now we’re here so sad and lonely
In the wicked world alone
Just a widow and poor orphan
In our little mountain home
