Gentle Friend, the Lord holds you
In His arms. Your joy is found!
Knowing His love, you went eagerly
To His light where new life abounds.
Ever precious in Our Lord’s eyes
With a strong faith so pure and true
You, who loved to sing His praises,
Join rejoicing in Heaven for you.
God sees a good wife, a loving mother
A prayerful worshipper and knows that you
Have a quiet wisdom, hidden from others
Revealed to a husband devoted to you.
God honours you, Pauline for your witness
Quiet, constant, gentle and humble too.
