Sister Missionary to the Deaf

Reluctantly, we watched you leave our nest

Determined to go forth and stretch your wings.

Your need to succor would not let you rest,

Who felt such tenderness for weaker things.

Your call was inspiration. Your desire

To teach our Father’s silent ones was strong

And met the Spirit’s urging with a fire

Which has become your message and your song.

Our Father’s voice, for many, has been sealed.

His children who are yearning to receive

May now have plain and precious truth revealed

In ways they can acknowledge and believe.

My daughter, may you answer love’s demands,

Blessed by the pure and priceless gift of hands.
