Kirby Lewis the 14 months old son
of Mr. and Mrs. Jake Lewis closed
his eyes to the dear ones of earth to
wake in the image of Jesus and his
remains were laid to rest the day fol
lowing his death at Mountain Grove
church, Rev. B. F. Murphree con
dncting the funeral services
Death came, and with his icy hand
He stilled his loving heart,
But now he Ives in better land
Where death can have no part.
Our life is short and full of care:
The end is always nigh,
We seldom haif begin to live
When we are called to die.
The little life so short on earth,
A witness to us given
That death is but an angel's birth
A lift- begun in heaven.
Why should our tears in sorrow flow
When God recalls His own
And bids them le,.ve a world of. woe
For an immortal crown?
There is a soft and downy bed
Tis fair as bieati of heaven.
The couch for weary mortals spread
W I'e : they may rest the aching head.
And find repose in heaven,
Little Kirby we will miss thee.
In our family circle here
But some day we will caress thee
In Lhat happy land so fair.
