- "HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS TO BE WITH -- GOD." -- DYING WORDS OF FRANCES E. WILLARD.


"HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS TO BE WITH
GOD."
DYING WORDS OF FRANCES E. WILLARD.


"How beautiful it is to be with God."
Truer and sweeter words by dying lips
Than those above were never said,
Courage and hope and comfort, all, they brought
To those who mourned around your bed.

"How beautiful it is to be with God."
For many years you realized this fact
Walking beside Him day by day
With unfeigned love along life's checkered way,
Having no other wish but to obey.

"How beautiful it is to be with God."
Like you endeavoring hard to 'stablish right;
Helping seeds of kindness to sow,
Helping to cheer the lonely hearts, and bring
A ray of sunshine where you go.

"How beautiful it is to be with God."
Lovingly to sympathize with those
Whose lives are saddened and to speak
In mild and gentle tones reproving oft
Our brothers who are wayward and weak.

"How beautiful it is to be with God."
When life is closing fast and visions of
The mysterious future appear,
'Tis beautiful indeed amid the gloom
To feel, to know that He is near.

"How beautiful it is to be with God."
Dear soul, we hope, we feel assured that you
In bliss unbounded now behold
Your dear Redeemer face to face and walk
With Him the City's streets of gold.
