876. Another hand is beckoning us

1 Another hand is beckoning us,
Another call is given;
And glows once more with angel steps
The path that leads to heaven.

2 Unto our Father's will alone,
One thought hath reconciled;
That he whose love exceedeth ours
Hath taken home his child.

3 Fold her, O Father, in thine arms,
And let her henceforth be
A messenger of love between
Our human hearts and thee.

4 Still let her mild rebukings stand
Between us and the wrong,
And her dear memory serve to make
Our faith in goodness strong.
