All things work together for good to them
that love God.
Be though faithful unto death, and I will
give thee a crown of life.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they
shall see God.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they
shall be comforted.
Blessed is the man that that maketh the
Lord his trust.

For with Thee is the fountain of life: in
the light we shall see light.

dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Greater love than this no one has, that
one lay down his life for his friends.

Whosoever believeth in Him should not
perish, but have eternal life.

Beyond is an infinite morning of day
without a tomorrow.
But in the night of death hope sees a
star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing.
Death is not a foe, but an inevitable
Death is the golden key that opens the
palace of Eternity.
Death's but a path to be trod if man
would ever pass to God.
Dust thou art, to dust returnest, was not
spoken of the soul.
Each lonely scene shall thee restore.
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot
Earth hath no sorrow that Heaven cannot
Every man's life is a plan of God.
Faith builds a bridge across the gulf of
Give sorrow words; the grief that does
not speak whispers the o'erfraught heart and bids it break.
God gives us love. Something to love He
God is and all is well.
He hath awakened from the dream of life.
Heaven, the treasury of everlasting joy.
His daily prayer, far better understood
in acts than words, was simply doing good.
Humble love, and not proud science, keeps
the door of Heaven.
In His will is our peace.
Joy, joy forever! -- My task is done --
the gates are pass'd, and heaven is won.
Life's a voyage that's homeward bound.
Mercy to him that shows it, is the rule.
Music, when soft voices die, vibrates in
Mutual love, the crown of all our bliss.
Nature's loving proxy, the watchful
Now twilight lets her curtain down and
pins it with a star.
Onward to thy glory! 'Tis always morning
somewhere in the world.
Safe in the hallowed quiets of the past.
Sorrows are like tall angels with
star-crowns in their hair.
Strength is born in the deep silence of
long-suffering hearts, not amid joy.
Tears are often the telescope by which
men see far into heaven.
The acts of this life are the destiny of
The cross leads generations on.
The end and the reward of toil is rest.
The greatest attribute of Heaven is
The heart of him that truly loves is a
paradise on earth.
The heart of man is restless until it
finds rest in Thee.
The kiss of the sun for pardon, the song
of the birds for mirth,
One's nearer God's heart in a garden, than
anywhere else on earth.
The soul that suffers is stronger than
the soul that rejoices.
There hath passed away a glory from the
There is a sweet job that comes to us
There never was a night that had no morn.
Things past belong to memory alone,
things future are the property of hope.
Till the Master of all good workmen shall
set us to work anew.
'Tis not the whole of life to live, nor
all of death to die.
To love is to place our happiness in the
happiness of another.
Until the day break, and the shadows flee
What seems to us but dim funeral tapers
may be Heaven's distant lamps.
Where he leads me I can safely go.
Where there is much light, the shadows
are the deepest.
Where there is sorrow there is holy
Whither thou goest. I will go.
Yet in this heart's most sacred place,
thou, thou, alone, shall dwell forever.

A fleeting stay - a lasting memory.
An angel visited the green earth, and
took a flower away.
Awaiting the touch of a little hand, and
the smile of a little face.
Blossomed on earth to bloom in heaven.
Called by one who loves him so dearly.
Children are an heritage of the Lord.
Children are the keys to paradise.
Children bring their own love with them
when they come.
For of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.
God's garden has need of little flowers.
His was a man's courage.
Hush, my dear, be still and slumber;
Jolly angels guard your bed.
Let thy child rest in hope and rise in
Little Boy Blue has gone away.
Little Bo Peep has gone away.
Lord, we give you our littlest angel.
No jewel is as perfect as the innocence
Oh, for boyhood's time of June
Crowding years into one brief moon.
Our Baby Angel
Our littlest angel who went back to
Remembering a tiny angel.
Sleep undisturbed within the peaceful
Till angels wake thee with a note like thine.
Sleep, my little one, sleep.
So small, so sweet, so soon.
The child is the father of man.
The dutifulness of children is the
foundation of all virtue.
What would the world be to us if children
were no more?

A mother is a mother still, the holiest
Always loving: always loved.
God bless thee wheresoe'er thou art in
his great universe today.
God called her from among us to a home of
God took her home, it was his will, but
in our hearts she liveth still.
God's greatest gift returned to God -- my
Grace was in all her steps, heaven in her
eye, in every gesture dignity and love.
Her children arise up and call her
Her friends were her world.
Her friendship was an inspiration, her
love a blessing.
Her memory is enshrined in our hearts.
May God grant you eternal rest, dear
O, Lord, I put her in thy hands.
Resting with those she loved.
She concealed her tears but shared her
She gave so much and demanded so little.
She had a kindly word for each and she
died beloved by all.
She is resting peacefully with Jesus in
that beautiful home above.
She lives with us in memory and will
She loved people and laughter.
She passed through glory's morning gate
and walked in paradise.
She served and kept the faith.
She walked in beauty.
She would rather give than receive.
To know her was to love her.
When she had passed, it seemed like the
ceasing of exquisite music.

A loving father, tender and kind, what a
beautiful memory you left behind.
A man greatly beloved.
At the going down of the sun and in the
morning we will remember him.
Fond memories linger every day,
remembrance keeps him near.
God took him home, it was his will, but
in our hearts he liveth still.
He had a kindly word for each and died
beloved by all.
He lives with us in memory and will for
He loved his fellowman.
He loved people and laughter.
He was beloved in life.
His friends were his world.
His friendship was an inspiration, his
love a blessing.
His greatest joy was in making others
His joy was in serving others.
His life was gentle, and the elements so
mix'd in him, that nature might stand up and say to the
world, "This was a man!"
His mission on earth fulfilled.
My pal on earth, God's angel in heaven.
No man is indispensable but some are
O, Lord I put him in thy hands.
On him and on his high endeavor the light
of praise shall shine forever.
Resting with those he loved.
The world's loss was heaven's gain when
God took you home.
To know him was to love him.
To live with him and sing in endless morn
To those who knew and loved him his
memory will never grow old.
We loved him a lot, but God loved him

Words of Comfort
Always in our hearts.
Always Loving - Always Loved.
Asleep in Jesus Christ.
Asleep in Jesus.
At rest with God.
At the going down of the sun, and in the
morning we will remember them.
Beloved of the Lord.
Death is only a shadow across the path to
Entered into rest.
Everlasting life through Christ.
Forever in our hearts.
God could not have made earthly ties so
strong to break them in eternity.
Gone, but not forgotten.
Hasten, oh blessed hour of reunion!
He gave thee, He took thee, and He will
He longest lives who most to others
gives, himself forgetting.
Home with God, which is far better.
I shall but love thee better after death.
In loving memory.
Loving memories last forever.
May the souls of the faithful departed
through the mercy of God rest in peace.
Not lost to memory! Not lost to love! But
gone to our Father's house, above.
Ours for a little while, with Jesus
Rest in Peace.
Rest is thine, sweet memory ours.
Step softly, a dream lies buried here.
The song is ended, but the melody lingers
To live in the hearts of those we love is
to never die.
Too well loved to ever be forgotten.
Until we meet again.
What we keep in memory is ours unchanged
Your love will light my way, your memory
will forever be with me.

Popular Poetry Verse
Author Mary Frye
not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not here, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumnís rain.
When you awaken in the morningís hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not here;
I did not die.
