I'm lonely now dear husband.
I miss thy friendly voice
Though other friendly surround me.
I deeply feel thy love.

We're lonely now dear father,
For our thoughts in silence trace
Endearing recollections,
Which time can ne're efface.

We're lonely now, dear brother,
Within the house of prayer,
When we meet to praise our saviour
Alas thou art not there.
But when thy blessed memory
of resurrection dawns
Oh then we hop to meet thee
With all the blood washed throng.
