WE MOURN IN HOPE
John C Harding 1853
Though sadly through life I stray,
An angel's hand guards my way.
And pointing upward where thou art,
Cheers with this hope my drooping heart
We'll meet in Heaven
JOHN C HARDING
The orphan's friend bid farewell
To home and friends which were
many, calmly saying not my will
but thine O Lord be done.
Sweetly fell asleep in Jesus in
