678 (C.M.)

My head and stay is called away,

And I am left alone —

My husband dear, who was so near,

Is took away and gone.

It grieves my heart; 'tis hard to part

With one who was so kind.

Where shall I go to tell my woe,

Or ease my troubled mind?

In wisdom's ways we spent our days;

Much comfort we did find.

But he is gone; his glass is run,

And I am left behind.

Naught can I find to ease my mind,

Of things which are below;

For earthly toys but vex my joys,

And aggravate my woe.

But I'll repair to Jesus, where

I'll ease my troubled breast;

To Christ above, who is my Lord,

And my eternal rest.

And, oh, that He would send for me,

And call my spirit home,

To worlds of rest among the blest,

Where troubles never come.
