When our earthly life is ended,
And our earthly missions done,
We shall go across the river,
At the setting of the sun;
And in God’s celestial mansions,
Clothed in garments strangely fair,
We shall meet those gone before us,
We shall know them through the angel robes they wear.
When they bid us welcome over,
We shall know each other there.
Mary was the daughter of William Franklin Morrison and Catherine Wheeler.
