Though t'is an awful thing to die
   Twas fo to me yet the dread path once trode
Heav'n lift's its everlasting portals high
   And bids the pure in heart behold their god
From Earth's allurements our spirits took their flight
  We here entombed do ly freed from Alarms
With my stillborn babe who never saw the light
   My infant son my darling in my arms.
