Lonely is the home without you,
Life to us is not the same;
All the world would be like heaven,
If we could have you back again.
What he suffered he told but a few,
He did not deserve what he went through,
Tired and weary he made no fuss,
But tried so hard to stay with us.
Our lips cannot speak how we loved him,
Our hearts cannot tell what we say,
But God only knows how we miss him,
In our home that is lonely today.
Pray for us O dearest father,
To Jesus Christ, Our King,
That He may bless our lonely home
Where thou once dwelt therein,
And pray that God may give us strength,
To bear our heavy cross;
For no one knows but only He,
The treasure we have lost.
