      For some cause, we know not why, That from our loved ones we must part;

      The Lord knows best, on his rely, He knows what blessing to impart.

      And He prepared for us a place Where pain and sorrow can not come;

      Where we may view his glorious face, When weary toiling here are done.

      A place where faithful meet once more,

      In glad, unbroken bonds of love;

      Forever on that blissful shore, Prepared for us, yes, far above.
