Gone but not forgotten.
Precious darling, ho bas left us,
Left us yes forever more,
But we hope to meet our loved one,
On that bright and happy shore,
Lonely the house and sad the hours,
Since our dear one has gone,
But oh! a brighter home than ours,
In heaven is now his own.
Heaven retaineth now our treasure,
Earth the lonely casket keeps,
And the sunbeams love to linger,
Where our dear papa sleeps.
When we leave this world of changes,
When we leave this world of care,
We shall lind our missing loved one,
lu our Father's mansion fair.
Beyond the smiling and the weeping,
Beyond the waking and the sleep?
Our loved one rests in slumber deep,
In silent and eternal sleep.
Not now, but in the coming years,
It may be in the better land,
We'll read the meaning of our tears,
And there sometime we'll under?
We have lost our darling father,
He has bid us all adieu,
He has gone to live iu heaven,
And his form is lost to view.
Oh! that dear one, how we loved him,
Oh! how hard to give him up,
But an angel came down for him,
And removed him from our flock.
It is sad that one we cherish,
Should be taken from our home,
But the joys that do not perish,
Live in memory alone.
All the years we havo spent together,
All tho happy golden hours,
Shall bo cherished in remembrance,
Fragrant sweets from memory's
Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in thy grave so low,
Thou no more will join our number,
Thou no more our sorrows know.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of lifo is fled,
And in heaven my husband to greet
Where no farewell tears are shed.
We miss thee from our home, dear
We bliss thee from thy place,
A shadow o'er our life is cast,
We miss the sunshine ot thy face,
We mi^s thy kind and loving voice,
Thy fond and loving care,
Our home is dark without thee,
We miss you everywhere.
Farewell dear papa, sweet thy rest,
Weary with years and worn with
Farewell 'till in some happy place,
We shall behold thy face again,
'Tis our to miss thee all our days,
Thine in the Lord to rest for so,
He giveth his beloved sleep.

The Angel of death entered our

our only boy, Tommy, away from us.
Tommy, how we miss you!
No one on earth can tell,
But we hope in heaven to meet you,
There forevermore to dwell.
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is still;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God in His wisden has recalled,
Onr only boy home,
But if we are faithful here,
We will meet him around the thro.ie
A few more years shall roll,
A few mora seasons come,
And we will be with thee at res\
