EVANS, Frank

In memory of Frank Evans of Martin, W. Va., who died June 15, 1913.
Call not back the dear departed,
Anchored safe where storms are o'er.
On the border land we left him,
Soon to meet and part no more.
When we leave this world of care,
We shall find our missing loved one
In our father's mansion fair.
Through all pain at times he'd smile,
A smile of heavenly birth,
And when the Angels called him home,
He smiled farewell to Earth.
Heaven retaineth now our treasure,
 Earth the lonely casket keeps;
And the sunbeams love to linger
Where our loved one now doth sleep.
Dearest one, thou hast left us,
And our loss we deeply feel,
But 'tis God that has bereft us
He can all our sorrows heal.
Yet again we hope to meet thee
When the day of life is fled,
When in Heaven in joy to greet thee
Where no farewell tears are shed.
One who loved him.
