"Dear husband father, thee we morn
Sad by thy bier we stood alone
But faith reveals a hopeful tale
And softly soothes funeral wail
For Christ yet lives, a Saviour blest,
In whom we seek eternal rest.
This lifeless form, ecstatic thought
To sorrow and corruption brought
Shall at the trump's last awful sound
Among these blest we trust be found
Thy spirit join and ever be
In realms of immortality
May God to thee thy wife and children dear restore
And we our Saviour Lord in songs of praise adore."
