God’s Album
“There is another album,
Filled with leaves of spotless white.
Where no name is ever tarnished,
But forever pure and bright.
In the book of life- God’s album,
May your name be penned with care,
and may all who here have written,
Write their names forever there.”
Your loving daughter Mary Jordan

over time ocean sailing you may
often think of me tears and sighs
prevailing Then farewell my native shore

Hope will vanish sorrow

Our lives are alboms writen through
With good or ill, with false

Turns the pages of our lives;
God grant they read the the

and blot out the bad with tears
So be a Good girl dear Jennie

Whose home and its duties are lean to her heart
Who cheerfully warbles some musical ditty
While playing the needle with equisite art

Many years have flown,
and in her old arm chair,
Jennie sitting older grown
With silver in her hair.
And there she muses as she
wipes her glasses o’er and o’er
I wonder if my Album
keeps the memory of you.
She turns the pages through
and through, with many
a tear and a kiss.
When suddenly she stops and
says, Who could have written
this.  Remember it is
