I was so sorry to hear of Mrs. Hartman's passing. I had not seen her in many years, but remember her as being a warm kind woman who was so proud of her six children. She was a strong woman to raise six children almost on her own. She was a talented artist. I remember the beautiful paintings she did many years ago. Cliff, Billy, Brenda, Linda, and Mark, my heart goes out to each of you at your mom's loss. Prayers for everyone.

Come, Ye Disconsolate

Words by Thomas Moore; alt. by Thomas Hastings
Music by Samuel Webbe


Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish.
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
"Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure."

Here see the bread of life; waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.
