A FUNERAL HYMN ;

Written on the occasion of the death of a little child of Mt.

John Brooks, of Langdon, N. H.

Come, precious friends and brethren all,
And to the house of mourning go :
Learn what sad griefs and woes befall
All Adam's children here below.
This little child, fair as the moon,
Dear object of its parents' care,
A light extinguish'd ere 'tis noon,
No longer does their pleasure share.
A few days since, its prattle pleas'd
All the beholders that came near ;
But now iis body death has seiz'd,
Which causes us to drop' the tear.
Farewell, dear babe, in Christ the Lord,
Truubles and cares are fled from thee;
Thy bliss in Christ, as saith the word,
Is certain as eternity.
We now commit thee to the grave,
The house appointed for the dead,
And trust in Christ thy soul to save
From mis’ry, woe, and future dread.
May thy departed spirit swell
A song of joy ip realms above,
Where sin and Satan never dwell,
Where all is peace and heavenly love.

R. BARTLETT.
