We lay thee in the silent tomb,
Sweet blossom of a day;
We just began to view thy bloom,
When thou are called away.
Friendship and love had done their last,
And now can do no more;
The bitterness of death is past
And all thy sufferings o'er.
Thy gentle spirit passed away
Mid pain the most sever;
So great we could just wish thy stay
A moment longer here.
Thou minglest now in that bright ???
Around the eternal throne
And join at the everlasting song
With those before thee gone
Oh who could wish thy longer stay
To such a world as this.
Since thou hast gained the realms of day
Contributed by relatives
