In Memory of Robert Walker, who Died May 14, 1874
Dear as thou wast, and justly dear, We would not weep for thee; One thought shall check the starting tear; It is-- that thou art free. And thus shall faith's consoling power The tears of love restrain; Oh, who that saw that parting hour, Could wish thee back again. Gently the passing spirit fled, Sustained by grace divine. Oh, may such grace on us be shed And make our end like thine!
