"And Jesus said Suffer little children to come unto me,
and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of Heaven
Sweet child, tho' brief thy stay on earth, yet it was hard to part,
So strong were twined affection's cords around they parent's heart;
But thou in memorie's shrine shall live while reason holds its reign
Our sorrow cheered by this bright hope-- we'll meet in heaven again."
