And full of gentleness she is
This gentlest of all the daughters of the Lamb.
And there`s a prayer she prays -
She cries -
Constantly in Christ`s heart.
That one day
A certain Prodigal,
Denied the husks of swine,
Might suffer a keen pang of penance in him
Wrench his footsteps home.
While still afar off,
Betty come running to meet him.
And he`ll try
Under a fall of tears
To tell of his heart`s turning.
With one long kiss
Will hush him,
And touch him
With tender fingers on his face,
And in her arms
Welcome him all the deep dear joys of homecoming.
