SAFE AT HOME.
IN MEMORY OF MRS. MINNIE KENDRICK.


Dead! How can I say
That word of such an one
As Minnie was; whose influence
Still lives tho' she is gone;
Yes, she is dead; but only passed
From death to endless life;
Passed away from earthly things,
Away from its sin and strife,
Away from its sorrow and pain,
Away from its toil and care,
Only passed from earth to heaven,
To that home "over there."
Over there, now happy
With Jesus' blessed own,
On that shining, golden shore,
Minnie is safe at home.

She had such childish purity,
And such sweet womanly grace;
O, how we miss her presence,
Her beautiful, smiling face.
To every good cause she was
An ever faithful friend.
Ready always unto the poor
A helping hand to lend;

Ready to give a cheery
Comforting word to the sad,
Ready to help bear their burdens,
Ready to make them glad.
Tho' we see her no more on earth
Where she was loved and known,
Oh, the sweet and full assurance,
To know she is safe at home.

Safe at home with Jesus now,
Minnie, we know you are,
Where nothing that is sinful
Your happiness can mar;
Living and enjoying
That never-ending rest
That remains alone to the people of God,
The sanctified and blest.
And such you were, dear Minnie,
Before you went away
To that shining, golden shore
Of everlasting day;
Where you are waiting and watching
For your friends and kindred to come,
To ever, ever be with you
Safe in that beautiful home.
