Through all thy life let virtue Shine,
And by the Lord be led.
Then shall his blessings all divine,
Still cluster round thy head.
Thy days shall glide along in peace
And Jesus be thy friend
Thy death shall be a sweet release
Thy days shall never end -
Should dearest friends some kind memento trace,
Along the unwritten columns of this book
When distance or the grave hides form and face
Into this volume sweet t'will be to look.
