You should not lament your case

To take his soul from earth away.

An dsince 'tis so; let sorrows go
Your God hath sent his rod
He doeth His will; we must be still
And know that He is God.
It grieves your hearts; 'tis haul to

But he is gone; his time is run
And you are lu.'t behind.

You can ease your trout'e bo-it
Ind leave your Mcrows all behind
You'll be forever blest.
Look beyond cho bounds of time
When what we now deplore
Will rise in full immortal prime
And bloom to fade no more.
Let gentle putience smile on pain
'Till dying hope revives again
Hope wipes the tear; from sorrow's
And faith po ni.: upward to tiia sky
So many times you looked for him
And oftimes seen him come
Hut he hus left this world of .--in
And will novel more return
While he can never come to you
Let,not this gr:cve your hearts
For you can t in el home to hi.n
Where you will never part.
