Farewell to Marie

Today we say farewell

And a sad farewell indeed

To someone we knew so well

From earthly bonds now freed.

A greater glory to meet her

And ties to reunite

Angels there to greet her

The Lord to guide her flight.

Heaven’s gates swing open wide

Her soul on angel’s wings

Loved ones there all by her side

Hark, the herald angels sing.

Eternal peace is hers at last

No worry, no pain, no tears

We, fond mem’ries of the past

Through many happy years.
