Dearest one, we must lay thee
 In the peaceful graves embrace,
But thy memory will be cherished
 Til we see thy heavenly face
Peaceful by thy silent slumber,
 Peaceful in thy grave so low,
Thou no more will join our number
 Thou no more our songs will
know.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
 When the day of life is fled,
And in Heaven, with joy to greet
 thee
Where no farewell, tears are shed.
Mrs. Hattie Hicks
