How are my hopes, my lambent visions fled?
How disappointment racks my grief-torn heart!
My sole delight, my darling infant’s dead!
Thus end all earthly joys, thus dear connections part.
Yet why should I grieve for its early decay?
Since ‘tis taken from scenes of affliction away,
To mansions of glory above?
Then why should a sign rend my agonized breast:
In death it hath enter’d a permanent rest,
On the bosom of omnific Love.
