Representative Text

1 Escaped from mortal anguish,
Lovely child;
In pain no more thou'lt languish,
Lovely child:
Thou'rt now an angel fair,
Heaven's light is bright around thee,
Heaven's beams with glory crown thee,
So richly there.

2 The blast too rudely blowing,
Lovely child;
Thy tender form o'erthrowing,
Lovely child:
Full soon hath laid thee low,
In the narrow grave we laid thee,
Where the weeping willows shade thee,
And sweet flowers grow.

3 The glorious light of Heaven,
Lovely child;
Unto thy spirit given,
Lovely child:
To thee doth life restore,
Sickness that of late opprest thee,
Grievous pains that here distrest thee,
Return no more.
