General Verses


Every day in some small way
We miss you more than words can say.
In our hearts you will always stay
Loved and remembered every day.


scroll motif


A face is from our household gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A chair is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.


scroll motif


A beautiful memory dearer than gold.
Of a mother/father/brother/sister, etc.,
Whose worth can never be told,
There's a place in my heart no one can fill,
I miss you, mum/dad/lad, etc., and
always will.


scroll motif


In the quiet of the evening
I sit and think of you,
I open up my memory book,
Of the things we used to do,
And as I turn the pages,
My eyes are filled with tears,
For, although I have my memories,
I can't hold back the years.


scroll motif


May the Lord watch between me
and thee, when we are absent
from one another. (Mizpah).
Partings come to let us know,
We love more deeply than we show,
But love in death should let us see,
What love in life should really be.


scroll motif


You always waited for me,
Anxious, if I were late,
In winter at the window,
In summer by the gate,
Your thoughts were always for me,
Not once did you forget,
And so I know from Heaven above,
You'll be waiting for me yet.


scroll motif


Although we laugh and seem carefree,
And make no outward show,
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know.


scroll motif


There's a face we shall always remember
A voice we shall always recall,
A memory to cherish forever,
Of one so dear to us all.


scroll motif


To hear your voice, to see you smile,
To sit and talk to you a while,
To be together in the same old way,
Would be my dearest wish today.


scroll motif


To us he/she was someone special,
Someone set apart,
His/Her memory will live forever,
Engraved within our hearts.


scroll motif


Nothing could be more beautiful,
Than the memories we have of you,
To us they're very precious
Because they are of you.


scroll motif


I am the resurrection and the life,
He that believeth in Me, though he were
dead, Yet shall he live. John XI. 25.


scroll motif


Looking back with tenderness
Along the path we trod,
I bless the years I spent with you,
And leave the rest to God.


scroll motif


God saw you getting weary,
A cure was not to be,
He put His arms around you,
And whispered: Come to Me.


scroll motif


What he/she suffered he/she told so few,
He/She did not deserve what he/she went through,
Tired and weary he/she made no fuss,
But tried so hard to stay with us.


scroll motif


What he/she suffered he/she told but few,
He/She never deserved what he/she went through.
He/She left us suddenly,
his/her thoughts unknown,
But he/she left us with a memory
we are proud to own.


scroll motif


God saw you getting weary
The hill too steep to climb,
He put His arms around you
And whispered: Peace be thine.


scroll motif


God has taken you away from us,
And taken you to rest,
It's not for us to understand,
He only takes the best.


scroll motif


The family chain is broken now
And nothing seems the same,
But as God takes us one by one,
That chain will link again.


scroll motif


From our happy home and circle
God has taken one we loved;
Borne away from pain and sorrow
To a nobler rest above.


scroll motif


In days gone by I'd take your hand
And wish you all the best,
But all I can do now, is ask God
To grant you eternal rest.


scroll motif


To think we did not say goodbye
Will always bring regret,
But hearts that always loved
Never will forget.


scroll motif


I lived in hope. I prayed in vain
That God would make you well again.
But God decided we must part,
I watched you die with a broken heart.


scroll motif


It was a sudden parting
Too bitter to forget
Those who really loved you
Are the ones that won't forget.


scroll motif


A golden heart stopped beating
Two smiling eyes at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.


scroll motif


Your painful days are over
Your restless nights have passed
God took you in His arms
And whispered: Peace at last.

Not one to trouble or make a fuss
You asked for nothing from any of us
God called you to Him and we had to part
Leaving us lonely and with a broken heart.

You sit with a smile,
Waiting for those,
you have left for a while
And those you have left,
With their grief and their loss,
Will meet you one day,
By that old rugged cross.


scroll motif


Take him/her in Your arms Lord,
Guide him/her through the storm,
Sit with him/her in sunshine,
and let the wind be warm,
Play his/her favourite music,
And when you see him/her smile,
Tell him/her that we love him/her,
and he's/she's thought of all the while.

And when God insists, I too must leave,
To join him/her I loved, on that
wonderful shore,
With heartaches forgotten, and partings no more.

From home to heaven,
God Bless.

And memories last forever.

Which we gather through the years

I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

All of our problems, our fears and despair,
When we take them to Him on the wings
of a prayer.

For even though they've gone,
Within the hearts of those who care,
Their memory lingers on.
