His smiling beauties, though he lay
     With cold, extended limbs, for still
His face looked fairer than the day.

     But she turns and waves her hand,
Pointing to the glories o'er us
     In that happy spirit land.
‘Not dead, but sleepeth.’

     The loved one sleeps among the dead;
In Christ 'mid death he put his trust,
     To him we trust his soul has fled.

My husband's grave, that hallowed spot,
By me it ne'er shall be forgot;
The tombstone that doth mark the place,
And shall it be by time defaced.
