Bat calmly were thy sorrows borne, Although thy heart was anguish torn ; So gently didst thou bow thy bead, It seembd but sleep, yet thou wast dead. To friends that stood around thee crying, Thou smiling said, "now I am dying" And humbly didst thou ask as all, To meet thee in heaven," when Jesus calls.
