7.      Dear Mary, you must treat them well
And train them up for heaven; Teach them to love and serve the Lord, And they will he respected.
8.      And when your work on earth is done
And all life's toils are over, We'll meet again in that bright world Where all is peace and pleasure.
9.      Dear Father, you have suffered long
And prayed for my salvation; But I shall beat you home at last
And say, "Farewell, temptation!"
10.      Your eyes are dim and ears are deaf,
But O, the wondrous story! When we shall meet in that bright world, There we'll sing "Glory! Glory 1"
11.      Dear sister Nancy, do not grieve
The loss of your poor brother, For I am gone with Christ to live And see my blessed mother.
12.      Dear sister Mary's gone there, too;
She lives and reigns with angels, And Jefferson he died when young; I know I'll see their faces.
