Our dear little Gerald—
Thou hast taken thy flight,
Away from thy home,
Which thy presence made bright.
And while we deplore thy absence,
With sadness of heart,
We would not forget
Thy lot’s the better part.
Thy bliss and joy
Our comfort will be,
When we remember
That from suffering thou art free,
No more shall the pangs
Of mortality be known.
To ra< k the sweet body
Of Gerald's little form.
Then live on, rest on,
Our sweet little boy.
Soon thy sweet smiles,
We hope to join.
