In memory of Little Ethel Pierson
nge three years who died on August
17 She was the daughter of Luther
lerson and the idol of his heart
We extend to him our heartfelt sym
pathy Luther never realized just how
near and dear she was to him until
death took her but as he truly Bald
his loss is her gain When this world
sorrow is over and we are coming
home to rest our Savior will bid us
welcome and take us to the ones wo
love best
Put away the little dresses that sweet
Ethel used to wear
She will need them here no longer
She has climbed the golden stairs
She is with the happy angels and we
long for her sweet kiss
+ M
But her little feet are waiting In
the realm of perfect bliss
Lay aside her little play things wet
with fathers pearly tears
How hell miss his little Ethel all
tho coming weary years
Fold the dainty little dresses Utat
she never more will wear
For the little feet are waiting up
above tho golden stair
Kiss again tho little tresses cut
from her bright golden hair
As we know that angels kiss her
in the realm so bright and fair
0 wo pray to meet her yonder tor
a long and sweet embrace
Where the iittle feet are waiting
and well see her sweet dear
When our own last steps are taken
and wo too to death draw near
And the sweet songs of the Angel
softly fall upon our ear
Othe rapture and tho bliss will our
sorrows more than pay
All our troubles wllf seem nothing
when we greet that happy day
