Hymn/Song Information

Sister thou wast mild and lovely Gentle as the




Sister, thou wast mild and lovely
Gentle as the summer breeze,
Pleasant as the air of evening
As it floats among the trees.


Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in the grave so low;
Thou no more wilt join our number,
Thou no more our songs shall know.


Dearest sister, thou hast left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel,
But 't is God that hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.


Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life is fled;
Then in heaven with joy to greet thee,
Where no farewell tears are shed.


---Alternative verses---


Sister, thou wast mild and lovely,
Gentle as the summer breeze,
Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it flows among the trees,


Sister, thou wast mild and lovely,
Gentle as the summer breeze;
Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it floats among the trees.
