They were with us side by side,
, Hot Ions aiio:
Now they've pased on withthe tide,
in mystery's flow.
T'is but a little narrow stream.
This passage, death a darkened dream.
Jo st as we, across onr River,
See the snow-white cone.
Almost hear the "Come op hither!"
Uod saitb to His own.
Angels fly to bear tbeta thither.
Where they love and serve forever!
Not a ehadow crosses them,
In the Heavenly light.
In that upper, rarer realm,
Service is delight;
Might we bot know! God tends them
To bless the homes from whence
Eyes are h olden cannot tell
What's hid from sight
Dare not grieve! But say " 'lis well.
In God's pure light"
Still we love them none the less,
