Mary Ellen Smith Allman, 56, of Hendersonville, went home to be with the Lord unexpectedly on Sunday, 18, 2018 at Pardee Hospital. A native and lifelong resident of Henderson County, she was a daughter of the late Hyland P. Smith, Sr. and Mary Cox Smith.
Mary attended East Henderson High School and worked at Maycrest Hosiery Mill for 10 years.
I am Home in Heaven Dear Ones
I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over;
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever;
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly trod
The valley of the shade?
Oh! But Jesus’ love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,
Pray to trust our Father’s Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus’ land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!
